HUK is a classic Scandinavian street sneaker with a subtle but clear message.

ÅPNE is a clean-cut sneaker that celebrates the values and sensibilities of the urban Scandinavian mind. The classic and unpretentious silhouette is inspired by the clean lines that has made Scandinavian design a world phenomenon. With a generous but humble recycled rubber sole, ÅPNE is made for walking with pride through the streets of your city, while paving the way for a cleaner, more circular urban lifestyle. APNE comes in Orange or Black.
