How does a woman with a degree in civil engineering and a job in investment banking end up designing some of the most stylish and comfortable shoes for men?
Glad you asked.
It all started in 2012 when a serious foot injury led me on a quest to find shoes that were comfortable still stylish... after all as a woman living in Manhattan style always trumped function. Not being able to find the shoes I needed, I drew on my resources to design and construct one myself.
Post recovery, I went back to my job in banking and on hearing my story and new found love for shoe-making, my male co-workers asked me to make them dapper and comfortable shoes and sure I did. One pair of shoes at a time I began my foray into the brilliant and exciting world of men's shoes and accessories. I realized that my path was taking me out of corporate corridors, beckoning me to a nest where creativity, commitment to excellence and pursuit of unblemished quality were to be my guiding principles.
So when you ask how I got here, it's simple, people say follow your dreams they know the way, I know mine did.
