A Posse Ad Esse

A Posse Ad Esse, from possibility to actuality, captures the spirit of the brand and the evolution of Stephen Sung’s journey as a sneakerhead. Growing up in New York, he envisioned creating his own label since the 80s. Building upon a career in luxury product development and design, he was unsatisfied with what was available in the footwear market and decided to manifest his dream through the brand, A.Posse.


The men’s footwear spectrum has become saturated with two variations of sneakers; on one end, there are performance-based athletics composed largely of low quality, synthetic materials, and on the other, high-end sneakers meant to capture momentary trends. While athletic footwear is ideal for sports, the fabrication and construction lack the versatility for more tasteful occasions. In the high-end market, sneakers are often excessively priced based on name and notoriety rather than substance and function. This leaves a vast gap for the contemporary man seeking reasonably priced, premium sneakers that match his lifestyle. Through our relationships with the world’s foremost suppliers, we provide a product that seamlessly meets these needs. As an independent brand, we focus on creating quality, functional goods rather than those based merely on hype.
