Human Recreational Services (HRS) is a new label by Erik Ellington and Dennis Martin. The brand aspires to redefine contemporary footwear by offering an elevated product while referencing the founders’ skateboarding lineage and building on Ellington’s 20 years in the footwear industry. All shoes are produced by hand in the Dominican Republic, using Italian leathers and premium materials.
“We work with our designers, manufacturers, and our team to create the highest quality shoes we can,” says founder Erik Ellington. “When asked about this project, I’m careful about categorizing HRS. I’m focused on creating lasting product that people will wear through trend cycles.”
HRS is supported by Lucien Clarke, Rory Milanes, Keith Hardy, and Bryan Herman.
