Where NYC meets Amsterdam

More and more we find ourselves surrounded by sneaker addicts. But where do they come from and what is their vision? For Pim Dresen, founder of Mercer Amsterdam, his fascination started at the young age of ten years while buying his first pair of sneakers in Mercer Street Soho, New York. Over the years he began developing his own ideas about sneakers; what they should look like and how they should fit. It was only natural that he designed and produced his first sneaker. Now, three years later Mercer Amsterdam sneakers can be found in 8 countries in over 70 shops. Mercer Amsterdam, the brand where NYC chic and Amsterdam street meet. Where rules are not followed and independence is valued. The materials used are high-grade luxury leather skins, linings and rubber soles, while the silhouettes are inspired and influenced by streetwear.
