Originally launched in 2004, Aprix sought to elevate the humble gym shoe. The original cold war era sneakers have never been truly surpassed in style. Designer Brendan Babenzien (formerly of Supreme) brought Aprix to the market at a time when no shoe brand designed anything quite so basic, and elevated at the same time. He was, as with many of his ideas, ahead of his time, and shuttered both Aprix and his apparel brand NOAH. After a lengthy hiatus, Babenzien has relaunched both NOAH and Aprix. The simple design, vibrant colors and high quality materials make these an unbeatable summer sneaker.
