Lot of people wear sneakers/trainers and denim and they wear belts. However most belts are made in formal colours like black or brown and they don’t match the colours your trainers. Other belt errors are being the wrong material or the style that just don’t match the complete look. To solve this problem Dennis Roelofsen from Amsterdam created a unique concept called the Sneaker Belt aka SNKRBLT, the world’s first belt that matches your sneakers.
“When I wear a suit I always wear a belt that matches my shoes” says Dennis Roelofsen, creator of SNKRBLT. “But when I wore sneakers, I didn’t know what belt to wear. So I decided to solve this problem for myself and everyone else”
In a time where sportswear, denim and designer labels are more and more worn in daily life, SNKRBLT helps the sufferers of bad belt and footwear combinations. With the help from crowdfunding on Kickstarter.com SNKRBLT aim is to sell 400 pieces to start with and raise €20,000. The belts are designed in Amsterdam and are handmade from high-end leather on the Adriatic coast of Italy. By only selling online and cutting out the middle man these belts can be offered at a reasonable price.
“Worldwide millions of people wear sneakers with an awful belt. Have a look around you from now on.” – Dennis Roelofsen
