We offer products we love to wear. Everything we do share certain key values; no compromises in terms of materials and construction, lasting design, subtle branding and discrete colorways.
Our sneakers are produced around our own specially developed last, designed to give a narrow and elegant appearance rarely found in shoes of this kind. Their inner soles have arch support and several layers of cushioning. To ensure further support and stability, soles have a metal shank, normally only found in fine dress shoes. Only the finest Italian materials are used; from the leather or suede of the upper and the smooth calf leather of the inner lining, stitched to outsoles from Margom made of natural rubber. All our shoes use very limited padding, for a soft and glove-like fit.
We design our products in Sweden and manufacture them in a carefully selected factory in Portugal. Approximately 80 percent of the production is finished by hand by skilled craftsmen, giving each product a unique look and feel. We personally spend a great deal of time in the factory with the people crafting our products, to ensure the highest possible quality and finish.
The TARMAC is our Quarter Top sneaker and our first model. It is laid back yet elegant, making it the perfect everyday sneaker and a true "hybrid". The name TARMAC comes from our love for racing and traveling, and the fact that it is a platform product for us.
The RACQUET is our classic tennis silhouette, with an innovative deconstructed build. The RACQUET has an inner lining only around the heel area, creating an extremely soft sneaker with excellent breathability. It may be the most comfortable sneaker you have ever worn. If you enjoy this style but prefer a lined version, have a look at the RACQUET Sr.
The MONTEM is our Mid Top. Its design is inspired by classic basketball sneakers and ski boots but without any unnecessary details. It sits on top a slightly higher sole with a herringbone pattern, making it a perfect year-round sneaker.
The PORTICO is our Quarter Top slip-on. It is our most advanced shoe yet, with an elastic band hidden inside the lining of the shoe keeping them tight on your feet, for supreme comfort also when worn without socks.
The ATLON is our ultra-comfortable hiker silhouette. Perfect for dwelling city streets or for long walks on the countryside, also during colder months. The Vibram sole gives you excellent cushioning and grip without compromising on style. The ATLON is something unique to a niche otherwise occupied by traditional hiking brands.
The JETTY is a low whole-cut slip-on. It is made of a single piece of suede with no elastic bands. It is a simple, low and sleek silhouette that works perfectly barefoot on the beach, with a pair of your favorite jeans or as an alternative to a loafer on a summer night out.
The ATRIUM has just been brought back after a two-year hiatus. It has been gently revised with sharper lines and less padding for even better looks and comfort. Its combination of nylon mesh and suede together with the natural gum sole take this retro racquet-ball style into the 21st century.
The QUARTA is a 'quarter top' which bears hallmarks of 90s tennis and skateboarding shoes, applied to a narrow and elegant last giving a sleek impression.
All CQP sneakers are delivered with two pairs of laces, a custom tote bag, a care instruction card and, of course, our compliments.
