CLAE has been launched in 2001 out of the need for a new approach to footwear, which was to modernize the classic silhouettes to fit today’s active life style. Versatile footwear that moves with you day to night, work to play that compliments a modern man’s wardrobe and life. Footwear that is designed for everyday living without sacrificing style or comfort.
CLAE was developed as an evolution of post-rebellious youth, when streetwear was rooted by skate, surf, punk and hip-hop. With that independent mind set we developed a sense of refinement in our style, where the clothes and shoes we used to wear do not define us as they did growing up; rather, we now define what we wear.
