The Alta Sneaker
About the Brand
Sneakerheads Ryan Babenzien and Jon Buscemi (former Brand Director at Oliver Peoples) founded their shoe company in 2013, bringing the direct-to-consumer energy they’d seen in other markets to footwear. As the name suggests, they’re focused on old-school silhouettes done in materials that feel of-the-moment, like buttery pastel-pink, or bright-blue suede. The entire operation is proudly based in Brooklyn.
