In 2011 life awakened my restless nature. It began with short trips and local wanders. And everything in between. By 2019 I had reached my tipping point. I wanted to see the world. So I resigned from my 10 year office career, sold everything I owned and wandered on through the world.
Along my travels I recognized my taste for an easy, light and comfy shoe. Something casual or dress, with shorts or jeans to slacks. Lets say an Indie Prep. But I couldn’t find something as clean and minimal as I was looking for. My wander had in fact led to my next direction. I set out to create my take on a perfected mens leather slip on for travel and leisure. Along with the inspired interest to advocate the reward of a good wander.
