REACH THE STARS

"Reach the Stars," pays respect to the modern-day dreamers, pioneers, and champions. May these totems bring you strength and affirmation.

Alpha

Alpha explores hidden potentials. Appearing stately and composed at first, the slightest of movements causes the pent-up wings to stir, to unfold. The true strength of the Alpha, however, is grounded in its heels. Inspired by lathe-turned balusters, they exude power and crude beauty.

Corona | Silver

Corona explores natural beauty. The foot is showcased in its most beautiful state, resting and elevated, with as little obscurity as possible except to further highlight its beauty.

Pegasi

Introduce customers to your shop with lifestyle imagery and product photography.

Monoceros

Monoceros tells the tale of ascension. By reimagining the penny loafer – itself a story of ascent from Norwegian fishermen to Ivy league stable – with our intricate folds, this everyday favorite promises to help us reach the stars.

Lynx

Lynx explores the power of a whisper. By rethinking the intricate folds on the Alpha as a small, subtle hint of unleashed tension on the vamp, Lynx shows that powerful statements can come in a whisper.

Cygnus

Cygnus explores complexity. By placing contrasting folds, lines, and curves, carefully, it shows that complexity can still be harmonious and pleasant.
