As LA’s No.One footwear company makes clear, the name of their Triple Black Bravo isn’t accurate. Really, the best way to understand just how remarkable the shoes are requires looking at all the ways they’ve used premium black materials. First, the sleek sneakers are quintuple black when you count the black veg-tan footbed with black foil embossing and the black Plonge lambskin lining. This is in addition to the full-grain, vegetable-tanned Tuscan leather upper and stingray-embossed leather tongue and heel. Not only is that a lot of leather, it’s a few types of leather textures that come together quite nicely—thanks to black waxed Italian laces.
Beyond the colorway and materials, No.One’s limited production approach makes all their sneakers highly desirable. All their footwear is 100% hand-lasted at their factory in Venice, California. There’s a meticulous care for craft and that almost-athletic aesthetic looks active and energized while keeping things elegant.
No.One Triple Black Bravo are available online for $675.
