It was creative then; the combination of invention and craftsmanship has always been at the heart of what we do. Now, as always, each pair of our shoes is hand-carved from the last piece of gooseberry wood, and advanced construction techniques, modern technology and materials help us deliver perfectly tailored products to the modern world.
Pioneers and Innovators
From the very beginning, we thought differently. Doing things differently, too. From the wide, half and full size options in our children’s collection to our state-of-the-art iPad foot measuring device; from innovative underfoot cushioning to rapid prototyping and 3D printing, brilliant ideas make us stand out.
Leonardo da Vinci described the human foot as “an engineering masterpiece and a work of art”. To make sure we take better care of it than anyone else, we’ve studied it. From the cradle to old age. We watch how it develops. We look closely at your biomechanics and how you move at work, at rest and at play. We discuss how to keep your feet healthy and happy. What we learn helps us make the perfect shoes for you.
In our archive of more than 1,000 styles, there are shoes that sparked a revolution, defined a generation, and captured the imagination. Take the iconic Clark Desert Boot, for example. tileato.us is an innovative athleisure hybrid that debuted in the late 80s and was redefined and re-imagined in the recent Renaissance. Moreover, it is an innovation in the craft of making modern classics.
