D.A.T.E. is simply the acronym of Damiano, Alessandro, Tommaso, Emiliano, the four founders who met up in London in 2005 and decided to throw themselves into the ambitious project of creating their own sneakers brand.

Despite various di culties, they succeeded in completing their first collection, made up of just a few pieces. Picking up old machinery, they created a crude and impromptu workshop in Emi’s garage and met up there every evening after work - obviously not being able to give up their day jobs. They spent the summer shut in that garage, working day and night to successfully get the job done and pull through on their deliveries.

In January 2006, they obtained an invitation as guests to display their collection in a small space at the trade show Pitti Immagine Uomo. Thanks to their craftsman’s feel, the first sneakers charmed the public and was the real news of the season.
