Filling Pieces is an Amsterdam-based footwear label, established in 2009 by designer Guillaume Philibert.
While studying architecture, Guillaume realized that there weren’t any premium high-quality sneakers out there for a reasonable price. Recognizing both a challenge and an opportunity, he started to design – following his vision of creating a unique shoe. A shoe that would bridge the gap between streetwear and high-end fashion.
At the end of that same year, the first Filling Pieces collection was born, consisting of one unique silhouette: the ‘Low Top’. Guillaume pitched this model to friends, family and stores, and it instantly became clear that everybody loved it.
Nowadays our collection consists of a variety of unique and contemporary models. All of them handmade with great care in Portugal, using only the finest Italian materials. Staying true to our Amsterdam roots, we also love to travel the world and get inspired by the great styles and people all over the world. As we bring our passion and inspiration to more and more places, Filling Pieces is becoming a real global brand.
Always ensuring the highest quality and original designs, we maintain affordable prices. Filling Pieces wants everybody to be able to experience the feeling of true quality-footwear.
During the previous seasons Filling Pieces has built up great relations with well-known fashion brands and leading designers.One of the most successful collaborations is with footwear designer Ronnie Fieg and his store KITH in New York.Last season the third collaboration was released, which was a great success. The people were waiting outside in a line for two hours to purchase the shoes and it was sold out in one day. When the collection was released online, the system almost crashed due to the traffic. Here it was sold out within a few hours.
