So what’s up with these cool and hip sneaks, you ask? Circle3.nyc is the brainchild of Takako, a dynamic Greenpoint resident, shoe designer, creative, and a mom. She’s been living in Greenpoint since 2015 and has been loving it ever since. Takako has been a shoe designer for over 20 years and comes from a designing family, she’s the third generation in a line of shoe designers. She’s created epic products in Japan, Spain, and now, New York.
Takako’s attention to detail and intuitive design shows with streamlined silhouettes and an aesthetic that is just as dope and it is functional for daily wear.
