Filling Pieces

Filling Pieces has unveiled the first sneaker from its “Family” themed SS20 collection, the FP REAF. The new silhouette marks a departure from the ultra-clean, geometric sneakers that the Amsterdam brand is known for, and introduces a bolder look to the range. To celebrate its launch on December 13, Berlin-based sneaker retailer Solebox will host an exclusive Filling Pieces pop-up followed by a party at the iconic 808 Club.

The FP REAF continues to straddle the line between high-fashion and sportswear sneakers but veers away from the brand's signature silhouettes in favor of a running-inspired design with a rugged outsole, and vibrant mesh and nappa leather upper. Branding is discreet as usual with ‘Filling Pieces’ written across the leather heel tab and the FP rubber patch logo on the tongue. The letters 'FP' also form the skeleton of the lightweight design.

The sneaker is the first to drop from the brand’s SS20 “Family” collection, which celebrates the concept of family in all its forms. Not limited to the biological, the campaign highlights the kinship between friends, collectives, and communities, who are united in spirit rather than by blood.

With this sentiment in mind, the FP REAF campaign depicts a day in the life of East Berlin as seen by German photographer and new media artist, Felix Gartner. Known for his photographs that he describes as capturing ‘the little mishaps and moments in-between’, Gartner traces the streets around Solebox’s store in Berlin’s Schoenberg neighborhood with local models sporting the new sneakers.

The FP REAF drops in two colorways on December 13 at Solebox and online. For those based in Berlin, head to Solebox’s store on Nürnberger Strasse 16 from 6 p.m. for the launch and join the afterparty at Club 808 from 11 p.m.
