Pointer was established in London in 2004 by Gareth Skewis, co-owner of Slam City Skates. In response to a market then saturated with increasingly technical trainers and hyped-up limited edition sneakers, Pointer aimed to make simple, well-designed casual shoes. Pointer employs people it likes, from artists to interns. The company is backed by a creative stable of friends and co-conspirators, inspired and informed by everything from art and music to skateboarding and breakfast.
