A.S.98 was established in 2014 as a rebranding of the AirStep brand, founded in 1998. Right from start, the brand stood out for its innovative yet traditional spirit. All the features of the shoe-making tradition have been retained unaltered: quality raw materials, care for detail, and hand craftsmanship.
The wide variety of hides used means a constant commitment and challenge. The same sensitivity devoted to shoe-making is indeed found in the use and search for high-end natural materials paired with unique expertise and a dedication to uncompromised quality. This is all supported by Italy’s quintessential shoe-making tradition.
Traditional techniques, extensive experience, rigorous training, a technical and aesthetic focus on exclusive and innovative solutions: this has always been the approach of a brand that has everything it takes for a constant innovative drive, to project craftsmanship into the near future. These are the distinctive elements of the A.S.98 brand that place it at the forefront in terms of leather footwear and accessories for both men and women. Every season, the collections are driven by AS98’s spirit, which combines passion and a strong personality with a rock-inspired attitude.
