No.One is an independent footwear brand founded by Mark Gainor and Jimmy Gorecki borne from the converging disciplines of ‘art, craft, and technology.’ The luxury startup creates custom-made extremely limited-edition sneakers using traditional shoemaking techniques designed exclusively ‘for you, and you alone’ by a crew of four cobblers at a small studio in Venice, California which allows for creative flexibility. Some recent bespoke commissions have included sneakers made from impala fur, as well as a waterproof pair reconstructed from a Gore-Tex military jacket. “To us, No.One is very much a post-skateboarding shoe,” says Gainor. “Not only in the physical sense but in the larger sense of finding a home and platform for the DIY values and culture from growing up in skateboarding.”

In addition to those unique creations, the team also works on small batches of production-run models, producing from 15 to 20 pairs in three classic silhouettes, with prices starting at $575 a pair. The turnaround timing of creating each run takes roughly two weeks, and with each release, typically only a couple of pairs in each size are made available. See more like this here.
