Our Approach

Our high-quality shoes are manufactured to exacting specifications by the best factories around the world.

Our Legacy


Our original boutique opened across the street from Bloomingdale’s flagship location in 1975. Shortly after opening, our shoes made their way onto the feet of New York’s fashion elite and into the pages of Vogue.
Our billion-dollar retail history has included features in runway shows, publications like Harper’s Bazaar, partnerships with major retailers like Neiman Marcus and Sak’s Fifth Avenue, and distribution through thousands of independently owned boutiques around the world.
