Founded 2013 in United States
Based in New York

We started this company to create products we were proud of. Beautiful, high-quality and thoughtfully designed products. Products we needed and wanted, yet could not access.To build a brand not chasing trends, but rather focused on perfecting a consistent reliable offering. To build a brand with people and prices we could relate to; a brand that was accessible to us.

We began in 2013 from square one. Just the two of us. Our goal was to create simply designed, well-made and well-priced men's shoes; the product we loved but couldn't find. We had no framework, no certainty, no long-term plan. Without realizing it, we were beginning the greatest journey of our lives.
