Danish footwear upstarts BORN/RAISED have made quite a name for themselves with their tasteful, super minimal sneakers and casual shoes. Check out some of their styles below and definitely catch them in person if you are going to Capsule Berlin this week!


Who are you and what's your brand?

My name is Chung W. Cheung, the brand's name is BORN//RAISED.

How would you describe your brand's style?

Just scandinavian cleanness. We only design what we would wear ourselves.

BORN/ / RAISED has an all-round functionality.The pure Scandinavian lines appeal to the man who wants a solid, clean and minimalistic product.


Why make shoes?

Shoes define who we are.They give the finishing touch and complete an outfit.

What are the key styles from your SS15 collection?

Oh, hard question. We have so many styles. But if I have to mention just one, it will be our BO loafer (pictured above). It's a new product that has drawn a bit attention, because it's really a different kind of loafer.


What do you love to eat in Berlin?

I always goes to DUDU. It's a nice Asian place; fantastic food and prices that are quiet different compared to Denmark.
