YORK Athletics Mfg. is inspired by history. Take “The Henry,” for example. It’s a hyper-understated fitness shoe, available in a number of colorways, but all demure. Looking at the new Field Green iteration, we see the brand paying homage to their roots. The vibrant base of the shoe is actually the exact green from the Indian Head Shoe Company’s logo 70 year’s ago. (Indian Head Shoe Company being the mom & pop shoe store of Manchester, New Hampshire, with a focus on customer service and great products. It’s also where you can go pick up a new pair of YORKs.)

Looking at the line up from YORK Athletics Mfg, you may be surprised to see such modern design coming from an independent brand, family-owned for three decades. Each pair of sneakers has a simple silhouette and is made in a classic color (like concrete, bone with gum details or black.) Plus the accessories to accommodate your new shoes match the minimalist regime. Pair your favorite Henrys with performance calf-height socks, a super breathable 5-panel and a black-on-black screen printed tee, perfect for the gym or the next happy hour.
