ILYSM is a creative studio and footwear brand. Their offering stands out due to its contemporary, thoughtful construction. Crafted from yarn sourced from a mill that specializes in natural and traceable products, the shoes were designed from the ground up with consciousness in mind. The uppers are specifically designed to save 30% in waste material over other sneaker models, thanks to a pattern that knits the uppers exactly to shape. Each shoe utilizes textiles that blend threads of recycled polyester, viscose and silk for comfort and durability, with a merino wool sockliner that inherently reduces smell from sweat and footbed supported by a layer of merino wool and recycled foam.
