Though they only recently hit on European and American shores in 2008 thanks to a brand reboot, Warrior Footwear isn’t exactly short on history. The label was born in Shanghai, way back in 1935. What started as shoes for Chinese athletes became a household name by the '60s, '70s, and early '80s, with everyone from politicians to common folks sporting a pair of Warriors. Fast-forward back to the 21st Century, and the company’s simple, low-profile shoes have become favorites among Chinese alternative youths and Stateside style acolytes alike.
Inspired by the sneakers worn by midcentury Shanghai athletes, Warrior Footwear is both utilitarian and handsome. The white-and-red Court King sneakers are a great leap forward from Jack Purcells from the same time. Factory People’s T-shirts, meanwhile, are vaguely proletarian but strangely comfortable and definitely stylish.
