We are artists, designers, creators, and craftsmen. Unique personalities creating unique fashion. Our inspiration comes to life in designs that are more than shoes; they are wearable works of art. The A.S.98 ethos is something that can't be taught in school, it comes from who we are and manifests itself in our designs. It's the lifeblood that flows through our work and is imbibed by those who wear our shoes: dynamic, daring, expressive, authentic, confident, creative, and bold. A.S.98 celebrates the rough edges and imperfections that make us all genuine originals, and recognizes there is only one true arbiter of cool...you.
