The first version of the Sagan was developed for our own use in the workshop as the perfect bespoke shoemaker’s working shoes.

The then simply denominated s-loafer (“shoemaker” loafer), was designed to be comfortable enough to work in all day. Ultimately, during the process the shoe developed into a state of perfection through constant development.

It was later renamed the Sagan when increasingly more clients started commissioning bespoke pairs in every colour and materials for their summer holidays, formal events and home use in the winter.

The Sagans are still fully handmade by the very same artisans who developed them, in the same atelier in London,  - and now worn by elegant gentlemen and shoemakers alike.


"Exploration is in our nature. We began as wanderers, and we are wanderers still."
