Sure, you’ve seen minimal trainers, but have you seen them from a brand that claims to be the ambassadors of minimalism? Well, that’s what AMB brings to the table. Though the brand has only recently come to our attention, it’s been around since 2008, and makes most of its footwear in Portugal. While the trainers are obviously covetable, for us, the standout item is by far the sandals with a built-in ribbed sock design. They’d work perfectly either with the feet out (for those of you with enough toe-based bravery), or with a contrast colour pair of socks for a nice footwear colour clash.
These aren’t readily available outside of Japan yet, but, with a stand at Paris’s Capsule show, look for that to change soon. If you can’t wait that long, visit AMB’s store in Japan for a closer look.
