On Saturday 31 July 2021 Afew Goods finally release their first sneaker: the Afew Goods Yamasura. The model in the colourway 'Soil' symbolises the basis the designers have laid for their first own shoe. It was a long process to make the sneaker as durable as possible.


Afew Goods: first own sneaker

Afew Goods is a German retailer that sells sneakers and streetwear products. After years of selling other brands' products and multiple collaborations, it was time to release its own sneaker. The process took more than three years and a lot of time and research. Watch the story of the creation of the Afew Goods Yamasura 'Soil' in this video:

The Yamasura was designed in Germany by the founders of Afew Goods. After a long search for the perfect producer, the small factory Tofel in Portugal was chosen, where the sneaker is handmade. Tofel is located in the town of Felgueiras in the north of Portugal and employs 60 people. Owner Pedro has been working in the factory for 30 years, which used to belong to his father. The family business turned out to be a perfect match for Afew Goods.

The two-tone outsole features the Afew Goods logo. The logo is the focal point of the design. In addition, inspiration was taken from a special car: the Ferrari Testarossa. The double side radiators near the engine were the inspiration for the shape of the sneaker and for the details on the midsole of the Yamasura.

The colour composition of the sneaker consists mainly of dark blue. There is also a light brown earth tone added and white on different parts. The Afew Goods logo can be found on different places, besides the sole, the logo can also be seen on the sides, near the laces and the written name can be seen on the tongue.

Durable materials

The designers found it important to use sustainable materials on the sneaker. For example, algae were used to form the EVA Bloom Algae midsole. In addition, the upper is synthetic and therefore contains no animal materials. The upper consists of a variation of suede, nubuck and mesh, which gives the sneaker a luxurious look. They also thought about sustainable packaging: the box is made of 100% recycled paper.
