Our Story

ILYSM is a sneaker brand and digital community-driven platform whose mission is to support an ecosystem of artists and elevate new talent.

We believe that sneakers and fashion can be a vehicle to connect everyday objects and experiences with artistic expression. 

We’re taking a community-first approach; designing, manufacturing, and selling sneakers and beautifully made things while working to empower artists. We bring balance and purpose to every step you take with beautiful materials, functional integrity, innovative technology, and sustainable practices.

You can support us in a few different ways. Are you an individual? Check out our tabi sneakers, or tell your friends about us! Are you a nonprofit, brand, or corporation that would like to collaborate? Let's talk!
