ABOUT US

Style and comfort?
A rarity in traditional men's footwear.

That’s because most traditional shoes are still made using 19th Century processes.

After more than twenty years at the forefront of footwear design - Cole Haan, Giorgio Armani & Ralph Lauren - Kevin Martel has set out to breathe new life into a market very few understand quite as well.

“Traditional doesn’t need to be unimaginative."

With that, Martel has committed to delivering impeccable style coupled with materials and techniques that provide a level of comfort more akin to a trainer than a dress shoe.

It’s a combination that has been pushed aside for centuries.

“Your feet are a true triumph of bio-mechanical engineering. They aren’t designed to spend all day in constrictive footwear."

It’s time for something new.
