Mercer Amsterdam was founded by Pim Dersen in 2013 based off of his love and passion for finding unique sneakers. While living in both New York and Amsterdam, Dersen drew inspiration from the urban chic styles of both cities and incorporated them into his mens sneaker designs. The products are hand-made in small family run factories because they do not believe that large scale corporations preserve the same high quality they strive to achieve in each pair of sneakers. Their materials are high grade leathers and rubbers that emulate a the feel of streetstyle. Whether their shoes are being worn with ripped jeans or in the office, they always strive to look smart and high quality.
