About Us


We design sneakers in the north for the world. We draw inspiration from the Scandinavian weather conditions and design our collections accordingly. This means that our collections are very seasonally based with weatherproof materials for Autumn/Winter and breathable materials for Spring/Summer. 


Our shoes are handcrafted in a small family owned factory in Portugal. We source premium leathers from Italy and high quality technical materials when we design our sneakers. Our sneakers are produced using high quality Margom soles from Italy, the industry leader. 


Comfort is one of our core values. We want you to be able to walk in our shoes all day without pain and discomfort. Therefore we use a antibacterial insole with memory foam that forms after your feet.  


When we produce our shoes we use a unisex last. This gives us a size range from 36 - 46 giving both men and women the ability to wear our sneakers.  

All of this is packaged in a premium North-89 branded shoe box with extra waxed cotton laces.
