Made in a family run factory that’s been crafting fine footwear for over three decades, our Park sneakers undergo over 30 unique steps that come together to create a sneaker that’s truly worthy. Our Parks are made with side-stitch cup sole construction, a rigorous and exacting method that cements the soles and uppers. A sidewall stitching machine then ensures a permanent bond. It’s a technique that requires precise skill and a steady hand. This lends the sneaker light, flexible qualities for a more athletic feel in an everyday sneaker.

Portugal has an illustrious heritage of leather workmanship with the level of craft rivaling that of Italy and France but with small-scale factories (read: smaller runs and a hand finished product). For this reason we’ve decided to make our Chelsea boots in Portugal’s oldest footwear factory (est. 1935). Our men’s Chelsea boots are set on a natural crepe sole that offers the utmost in comfort and support while natural full grain Italian leather and plush Italian suede gives these a cool, understated look.
