Los Angeles brand CLAE is the story of a genuine passion for trainers. Since 2001 they have been handcrafting minimalist footwear with meticulous attention to materials, design, comfort and production practices. Their timeless silhouettes are designed in LA and it’s here that the brand draws their inspiration: from the hills of Hollywood to the beaches of Venice and the streets of Downtown, its architecture, design, colors, and elegance are weaved through both their men’s and women’s collections. For more than 20 years, CLAE trainers have been handcrafted in the same workshop located in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam where high quality materials are transformed into a durable product. Currently, one third of the brand’s collection is vegan but CLAE is committed to further reducing their environmental footprint through the development of innovative, upcycled materials.
