Tucked away in a small studio in the heart of east London, James can be found sculpting and crafting his shoes by hand. Devon born, James Kearns has had a profound connection to Avant-Garde fashion from an early age. Inspired by traditional methods and with the highest quality materials, he breathes new life into the way we use and wear leather.

Every shoe is designed and produced with very little machinery. The leather is carefully selected to showcase its unique markings and blemishes, and with very traditional (and some more inventive techniques), James is able to create a range of superior footwear, that is unique in style and production. The self-taught designer has a love for materials that are difficult to source, and alongside the care that goes in to the production, James is able to offer his clients a unique and personal retail experience.
