Maybe the logo could be in the same color as the sneaker? That way it doesn’t alter the clean look
It's cut into the leather - no paint. See page 14 for a pic

Hey there is a point I have not raised in the past, but it came to me now. What about darker soul surfaces? That way it doesn’t show the dirt as much

Ah this would be quite tricky at this stage, primarily because it is untested and everyone will have a preference as per what colour they would want on the surfaces. However if it is a concern, all coloured soles will have equivalent coloured surfaces.

One thing I did think of and we won't be able to reflect in the shoppable imagery is that we have neglected to mention Styleforum nor the SF-01 on the shoe.
I have just requested the insole logo to change to Archibald - Handmade in Italy rather than Archibald - London so that takes care of the Italy aspect.

What do you think of a laser on the sole saying SF-01 Handmade in Italy or something?

sorry all. It seems there was just a mistake on the pre-production samples. It will say Archibald - Handmade in Italy on the inner sole just like our Ghirlandinas.

Regarding SF branding on sole... would love to hear thoughts. We will have to mention it in the product description if we implement it.

Love the SF-01 Handmade in Italy idea.
Maybe SF-01 can be printed on the rear quarter of the shoe like how Common Project does theirs?
That or the insole is fine with me.

The sample looks great, really looking forward to the black and grey options.
The SF-01 idea is cool, but outside would defeat the idea of the no-logo shoe I think.

Hi SF-ers,

We've got some good news to start off your weekend...

You can now shop the full SF-01 range.

Thank you to all who contributed, we're proud of the fact that this is truly the product of a cumulative effort. We’ve made sure it’s a secret link so that only users of the forum can purchase at the Naked (at cost) price which includes a donation of $5 per pair to Styleforum. In the event that there are any variations in the cost of the sneakers, we’ll return the discrepancy to purchasers in the form of Archibald credit, though we suspect that won’t be the case.

The sizing is true to our Ghirlandina sneakers with a size chart available for you to measure against, and each pair will come with tonal and white laces. We've also included the option of adding some minimal branding on the tongue, or having an entirely unbranded sneaker- the choice is yours.

You have 30 days to pre-order your sneakers- then we'll go into production, and potentially order a second run at full price that may be open to the public.

We hope you like them as much as we do!

Team Archibald
