In December 2016, the HOFF (Hall of Fame) sneaker brand was born.
It was a modest project a priori, with two young entrepreneurs, Miguel Botella and Fran Marchena, behind it and three clear signs of identity:
design, good materials and an affordable price
that allowed many people to show off their models.
Shortly after launching their first collection, they got their first (big) surprise.
Sara Carbonero appeared on Instagram with one of her models.
They couldn't have a better cover letter or more effective promotion

A few weeks ago, the Elche brand opened its first store in the Salamanca district of Madrid (Velázquez, 39) after months of looking for a place that met its expectations.
A store that aims to be
a meeting point for creative initiatives, workshops, presentations
... "We don't want to just be a store", they explain in the brand.
With a design of clean lines and simple geometries and materials such as marble, stone and lacquered metal, the space helps to show the essence of the brand, which has sold
250,000 sneakers in 70 countries since it was born
"In the spring-summer campaign - with home confinement in between - we sold 60,000 pairs."
From the beginning they were clear about the objectives.
Our intention has always been to internationalize the brand
", they say from HOFF.
The one in Madrid is the first store to open, but they already have 400 points of sale.
They have 'sneaked in' at Printemps in Paris, at Anthropologie in London and shortly at Revolt in the US.
"We are in more than 10 different countries, with the ambition to be in many more very soon."
In a market as competitive as that of sneakers, they have managed to position themselves with their own style.
The sole of its models is its hallmark from the beginning:

The collection that they have launched with the Spanish designer Moisés Nieto, who has designed a model for HOFF, has been a success and there are hardly any models available.
In December they will have the launch of a new capsule collection,
, for whose campaign, made in New York, they have had the model Rocío Crusset.
"It is a new model, with an air chamber, 100% leather."
The idea since its inception has been to create two collections a year, spring / summer and autumn / winter, "wrapped in capsule editions", they say in HOFF.
But the Alicante brand lives not only by design, which has captivated a multitude of well-known faces.
Philanthropy is at the core of HOFF
, which often helps in various causes, be it with a project in Malawi that has brought clean water to a community of more than 100 people this year;
raising money to research a vaccine for the coronavirus -they raised more than 8,000 euros- or giving away their sneakers to volunteer medical students at the La Paz hospital in Madrid.
They have not turned four years old and success has already knocked on their door.
There are already 30 people who make up the HOFF staff, which last year had a turnover of 2.8 million and
this year it expects to reach 5 million
