Mercer Amsterdam is a high-end sneaker label, founded by Dutch designer Pim Dresen. Based in Amsterdam, the label focuses on luxury handcrafted footwear and accessories for men and women.
Taking the New York SoHo district’s Mercer Street as the starting point, where founder Pim Dresen bought his first ever pair of sneakers, Mercer Amsterdam’s unique history informs its ethos. The attitude and style from two of the world’s streetwear capitals, New York and the Dutch capital, arguably informs the label’s designs.
To ensure quality and full creative control, construction and design has been kept entirely in-house, all of Mercer Amsterdam’s sneakers are European made, with creative teams in Amsterdam using premium Italian-sourced tanned hides, while all production takes place in Portugal.
Taking inspiration from the culture and iconic trends of American sports they have created a unique brand identity and message in which they present through their one of a kind designs and add in emphasis with their unique collaborations. They are the first brand to collaborate with Pinatex and created the very first pineapple leather sneaker that launched in 2020. They are also very well renowned with other creative collaborations with NASA which went viral and sold out worldwide. Other iconic collaborations include The Beverly Hills Hotel which is associated with very big celebrities, rock stars, and film stars. The collection included a Beverly Hills sneaker and an iconic 1959 pool towel that was famously given to guests in the Hotel.
Their upcoming collaboration collection includes Alcantara, an Italian producer very well known for their furnishings inside of Ferrari and Lamborghini.
“The moment you are wearing Mercers and people come up to you on the streets to ask you where you bought the sneakers - that’s the Mercer effect.”
Influential figures who have been known to wear the brand include, Chris Brown, Joe & Nick Jonas, Future Hendrix, Lady GaGa, Common, Quavo, Swizz Beats, Steve Aoki and many many more!
Mercer has made sure that sustainability is deeply woven within their brand DNA and has created a new cool and vibrant reflection of fashionable and vegan products for the Mercer audience. They are a leader in sustainable production with their use of innovative plant-based materials that they use with a mixture of mesh made from recycled PET bottles and soles made out of Algae. They express the importance of using plant-based materials in manufacturing and produce in local family- owned factories.
