A.Posse is committed to creating functional everyday products made from premium natural materials. Each pair of sneakers are crafted from old world techniques and designed with classic minimalistic styling. Our philosophy is to design kicks you can wear daily for any occasion.
The current footwear market is saturated with 2 spectrums for men. Flashy athletics constructed from synthetic materials, and the basic sneaker made with quality elements but outrageously priced. Athletic footwear is great for sports but constructed of unnatural components and lacks the versatility for appropriate occasions. A contemporary man needs an objectively priced basic sneaker while maintaining the benefits of quality materials.
Through our networks and close relationships with prime suppliers, we are able to provide a premium basic sneaker and at a reasonable cost. Our products are different because we emphasize quality materials, functionality, and style without a price markup based on advertising and hype.
A Posse Ad Esse
“From Possibility to Actuality”
A.Posse is derived from the Latin phrase “A Posse Ad Esse” which means “from possibility to actuality.” This phrase perfectly embodies the spirit of our startup brand that has evolved from founder Stephen Sung’s lifelong journey. As a sneakerhead of the 80s and 90s in New York City, he envisioned building his own brand one day. For 10 years in his young adulthood, Stephen specialized in luxury product development for the jewelry industry. After this experience and his life as a sneaker aficionado, he wasn’t quite satisfied with the footwear products on the market and decided to rekindle his childhood dream: A.Posse.
