Launched in 2016, the Los Angeles-based footwear company House of Future flung open its doors by offering consumers a stylish set of shoes boasting a particularly minimalist design.
After enjoying loads of success in its first year, House of Future decided not to simply rest on its laurels and introduced two incredibly clean new shoes in the Original Hi Top and Original Low Top. Decked out in stark white, the Original Hi and Low Top features House of Future’s signature microsuede accent on the heel. Though instead of a plain color to go with the bright white, the brand adorned this accent in a maroon, giving the shoes a simple and classic style.
As is evidenced by each version’s name, the shoes come in an ankle-high Hi Top (for $120) and a standard Low Top (for $110). Featuring a near-identical design — save for the extra lace loops on the Hi Top — the two models differ in that the accent exists as a vertical bar for the Hi Top and as a horizontal accent on the Low Top. Outside of the minimalist aesthetic, the shoes are manufactured out of micro-leather with its upper and interior lining. Featuring a welted rubber outsole, the shoe also comes with a pack of waxed laces.
With every pair of shoes purchased through House of Future, the brand includes a lightweight dustbag, helping serious shoe aficionados keep their kicks clean year-round. Additionally, the company also sticks a short flyer on how to care for the shoes in each box. Considering the Original Hi and Low Top are adorned in a clean white finish, routinely cleaning them is absolutely paramount in assuring they keep that out-of-the-box glow.
Sporting a classic yet simple look — with a price tag that makes it easy for anyone to wear them — House of Future’s Original lineup eschews flashiness in favor of high-quality style.
