We have created classic derby shoes that are both elegant and comfortable. Thanks to the Blake Stitch construction they are very flexible and easy to break in. On top of that their combined leather and rubber sole makes them very durable.
John & Paul is our very own brand named after its two founders. Our journey began in 2014 when we first met. Soon afterwards we discovered that we had a similar problem - with both of us having been quite slim, most ready-to-wear shirts made us look like a parachute. So we rolled up our sleeves and decided to do something about it. We decided to create our very own sizing system that would fit men who are either too slim or too tall for regular off-the-rack shirts. Our similarly built friends had helped us perfect the sizing and after a year of preparations we were ready to go.
It has been a while since then. We still make high-quality shirts, but we have by no means been idle. As of now we also make perfect T-shirts, polos, briefcases and have our very own line of Italian accessories such ties or pocket squares. And that is just the beginning.
We have taken a high quality calf leather, combined it with years of experience and created our very own derby - a classic yet less formal version of lace-up shoes with open lacing section. That together with a wider last and leather & rubber soles makes them truly durable and comfortable, even when worn round-the-clock.
We have opted for the Blake Stitch construction which is both light and durable, but also very flexible and easy to break in.
We recommend using the cedar shoe trees to prolong the lifespan of your shoes.
