BUILDING SHOES AND COMMUNITY

A visit to one of our stores is more than just an opportunity to see our footwear firsthand. It’s a chance to get an expert fitting, find out about our exceptional materials and learn how to care for the styles you already own. It’s also the best way to connect with people like Ashley who share your passion for the finest handcrafted shoes, boots and sneakers.

“UNLIKE OTHER HIGH-END, AMERICAN SHOE BRANDS, WE’RE INCLUSIVE. WE DON’T HAVE WAITING LISTS FOR OUR STYLES AND ANYONE WHO WANTS TO CAN COME TO OUR TRUNK SHOWS AND CREATE THEIR OWN CUSTOM STYLE.”

 

First as a store manager and now in her brand-new role leading in-store events and customer experiences, Ashley embodies that open and welcoming spirit. That includes going beyond helping customers find the perfect pair in person. “I follow all the online discussion groups because that’s where so much of the conversation around our shoes happens,” she said. Through those forums she’s become part of the community of enthusiasts who are discussing everything from the right way to maintain shell cordovan leather to the most talented patina artists who can give your favorite footwear a brand-new look.

 

“OUR HISTORY AND THE FACT THAT WE’RE STILL BASED IN PORT WASHINGTON REALLY INSPIRES A LOT OF PASSION FOR OUR SHOES.”

 

Joining that dialogue also means that Ashley can share your most important feedback and concerns directly with us. We know that building the best possible footwear for the next century demands more than just exceptional materials and craftsmanship. It requires people like you and Ashley, telling us what we’re doing great and what could be even better.
