Ports 1961 Bow SneakersI just fell deeply in love with these white goatskin bow sneakers from Ports 1961. Ports was founded in 1961, by Luke Tanabe, a Canadian entrepreneur. The company began as a business that imported silk from Japan, but gradually evolved to become an upscale women’s clothier with a reputation of making well-crafted garment. By 1966, the company was renamed Ports International, reflecting Tanabe’s itinerant spirit of global travel - a distinctive characteristic that would become the defining narrative of Ports.
