EYE-CATCHING SNEAKERS
"I bought myself the AF1 'Wavy' which are based on the black Nike Air Force 1. The hand-painted design made by Born Originals is just insane. Every brush stroke is unique. The yellow swoosh combined with the shades of blue in the wave design are truly eye-catching."

Martin W. from Amsterdam

GOOD DURABILITY
"When I first received the customized Sneakers from BO, I was not sure how long this design will stay on the shoes especially when I wear them on rainy days. But yeah, the paint is weather-resistant and they are also easy to clean with water and soap. Will buy another pair for my sister."

Carola T. from Cologne

GREAT CRAFTSMANSHIP
Finally I managed to get myself a pair of Born Originals' so-called Collector's Pieces and I could not be happier with the AF1 'Moments of Rose' with its fine details. The shoes have hand-stitched leather applications and hand-painted parts. Everything about these shoes is special and I love it.

Our Story

Born Originals® is founded in March 2014 by Melvin Lamberty, while he was in college. After Melvin posts a picture on Instagram of a Yeezy sneaker that he has changed in color, the picture goes "viral" and questions arise as to whether they are photoshopped, replicas or even custom sneakers. Melvin stumbles upon the topic of customized sneakers, teams up with an American artist, builds a website and launches his own brand Born Originals®.

Here to Inspire - Inspiration Through Individuality
Swimming against the tide, standing out from the crowd. That's what Born Originals - real originals - do. And they do it with style. Are you an original? Well, we think you are. And what's a great way to express your individuality? That's right, fashion. Maybe you know this moment when you meet someone. Usually you look the person in the eyes first, but where does your gaze go after that? Mostly at the shoes of the other person. This is exactly where we come in and have made it our business to make it clear at second glance - without even having to say a word - how individual you really are. Born Originals shoes - also called Collector's Pieces by us - turn your style into a real eye-catcher and let you always look impressive and fashionable. So you show your individuality with style! Born Originals stands for much more than just eye-catching sneakers. We have made it our mission to inspire, to share the stories of inspiring personalities and to give you the opportunity to positively influence others with your personality and style.

Born Originals - Focus on Shoes
Born Originals is more of a statement or movement than just another fashion brand. And we emphasize that not only through our collaborations with artists, creators and celebrities, but also with the possibility to place your very own custom order with us. What does that mean? Well, you can ask Born Originals for your individual product and our team will take care of the realization. Let's stay with the shoes, because we started with that in 2014, here we now have years of expertise to show and know exactly what works and what does not. To give you a better insight, let's start at the very beginning, with the creation of Born Originals. Born Originals founder Melvin Lamberty is bored of the fashion he sees every day in his daily life and thinks about how he can give it a little more individuality. So he looks into custom sneakers, hand-finished shoes that are based on an existing shoe but given an individual touch by the finishing process, making them special. The birth of Born Originals.

Custom Sneakers - Handmade in Germany
With the goal of upgrading popular shoe models of well-known brands, he begins to assemble a team of creative minds that knows how to recognize trends and still develop individual designs. Nike's absolute all-time bestseller, the Air Force 1, provides the ideal base for Born Originals' diverse designs. Due to its multi-layered surface there is enough space for the design and especially the Swoosh is an element that can be super included in the creative design. In addition to the AF1, there are also classics from other brands that like to be redesigned as custom sneakers. One popular model is the Adidas Stan Smith. This sneaker has also enjoyed great popularity among both men and women for years. There are even collectors who "specialize" only in this model. With its flat and sporty silhouette, the shoe is not only comfortable, but also timeless and therefore very popular. In addition to Adidas and Nike, models of the brands Converse, Puma and Vans can also be found in the assortment of Born Originals. These brands are also known to everyone and in turn provide models that can be seen in the streets of any big city.

Wearable Art - Exclusivity Through Limited Editions
Through individual refinement by painting or printing, the shoes become wearable art, also called "wearable art" by Team BO. They are eye-catchers and give you the good feeling of wearing nothing "off the rack". How could they be, when the shoes are hand-finished by artists in the Born Originals studios in Germany? Here, very individual products are lovingly handcrafted every day, with only a few pairs being made each day. Customizing sometimes takes over five hours, so your pair is one of very few, very limited collector's items. In addition, we also have designs that are only a small customization and accordingly take less time of our artists, which is also reflected in the price. This way we make sure that there is also something for those who like custom sneakers, but generally prefer something more simple on the road now only when you take a closer look you realize how exclusive their style is.

More Than Shoes - Fashion with a Message
As already mentioned, Born Originals is about more than shoes. It's about inspiration and individuality. The message "I am unique" already says the brand name, which is why you can identify yourself as a Born Original with all our products. So it doesn't have to be the shoe to show that you share our opinion. It is much more important to be aware of your individuality and to inspire others to become the best and most confident version of themselves. We have our own brand - i.e. shoes and clothing made entirely in-house - manufactured in the EU using high-quality materials. Again, the approach is "quality first" to always satisfy you and maintain our identity.
