The Shoe Must Go On
Walking through a Peruvian leather market in 2008, Gonzalo met a shoemaker who made shoes according to a client’s specifications. He asked the shoemaker if he could watch him work, and by the time his first pair of bespoke shoes was done he had discovered a new channel for his creativity in footwear.
This pair of shoes would become the first of a collection, and marked the beginning of many trips between Peru and Canada where Gonzalo would not only learn the craft of shoemaking but would also stitch together his Peruvian background with his adopted Canadian culture.

Designed in Canada, traded fairly, crafted from luxury leathers and slowly finished by hand by Peruvian maestros, this work of design and love will be as close to you as it is to us.
