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 label that has evolved from founder Stephen Sung’s lifelong journey. As a sneakerhead of the 80s and 90s in New York City, he envisioned a day building his own label. For 10 years in his young adulthood, Steve specialized in luxury product development and design. 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.
