Founded by Aaron Adams, Beyond Material is an Illinois based Bespoke Footwear service that allows you to bring your own personal creative vision to fruition in the form of a fully customizable luxury handmade pair of sneakers.

As well as offering a full bespoke sneaker service we also offer 1-on-1 (small group) Decon/Recon shoe making classes for those individuals looking to take it a step further and actually learn the craft of shoe making themselves. With nearly two decades of experience in the footwear/streetwear industry Aaron will invite you into Beyond Material Studio and give you the knowledge, tools and materials to create a unique one of a kind design.

Our philosophy is simple. There is more to it than just thread, leather and textiles. There is a personal story to tell with each individual project, it goes far Beyond Material.
