PREMIUM & MINIMALIST SNEAKERS
In 2001, CLAE was launched out of the need for a new approach to footwear, which was to modernize the classic silhouettes to fit today’s active lifestyle.
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.
DESIGNED IN LOS ANGELES
CLAE is where decades of wisdom from the streets and youthful determination meet.
Strongly attached to the city of Los Angeles surroundings, our collections are inspired by our fascination for the City of Angels and its multiple faces that we continue to explore, discover and love.

ONLY PREMIUM AND DURABLE
Rethinking the boundaries of conventional materials, we use premium leathers from LITE (Low Impact to the Environment) program providing premium quality materials, while utilizing environmentally-friendly production processes.
We also developed recycled silhouettes that are comprised of clean and elevated modern textiles transformed from recycled polyethylene terephthalate (P.E.T.) from plastic bottles that appear soft and smooth when compressed together.

Committed to reduce our carbon footprint, we work with organisations such as SEAQUAL, Desserto and Isa TanTec, to develop durable initiatives.
