Originally trained in computer science, this former Apple employee quit his job to start his brand Allan Baudoin Bootmaker out of a desire to re-connect with this traditional, century-old craft and keep it relevant in our digitally fuelled society. His passion for shoes were sparked when he got to know the shoemaker Kasim Yldir in 2013. Born and raised in Paris, Allan moved to London in 2007 where he's been residing since. Allan Langes carries three semi-bespoke models, a punched cap toe oxford, a double monk, and a chelsea boot. These can be modified with for example different brogueing, buckles, colour, patina and construction method.
