We from PURQUES reinvented the classic men shoe - Oxfords, Derbies, Single-Buckle, and Boots. Different from the masses we want to express sheer elegance and timeless design for an unbeatable price.   

 

Best Italian premium leather converted into a piece of art by an experienced shoemaker for the contemporary man.

 

  

 

 

One of the best Italian dress shoes affordable for every man, allowing you to create your very own shoe collection. Our shoes are made for an unforgettable evening event, long business work days or having delicious dinner with colleagues and friends.

 

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We believe in good relationships. Thus it´s essential for us to keep you Satisfied over the next years. We appreciate your trust; therefore, we decided to give a guarantee with each of our pairs. It covers 5 years! They will last for decades if you take care of them. Every single step is done by hand carefully with passion and high standards. But we want more and ensure our quality! If defects were not from common wearing, we would provide you a new pair of shoes! 

Giving you quality is not enough for us - WE want you to be happy with what you get! If Purques does not meet your expectations, just contact us, and we will prepare a Refund.

Choose between Early Bird or Kickstarter Special -  Save Money by adding Pair(s), Belt(s) and Shoe Tree(s) to your Reward.     

 

 

  

 

  

 

 

 

With each Pair of Shoes you will receive a Traveler Kit for free. The compact shoehorn lets you slide in easily. Keep it shiny where ever you are with our instant shine sponge. Choose 3 shoelaces of various colors creating different styles. 

 

Some say 'less is more,' therefore we decided to give our shoes a beautiful slim lined sole with a beveled waist - it will get more sophisticated. This kind of extensive processing adds strength to the waist and lets the shoes get lighter and more flexible than conventional models. It even leads to a more balanced wearing.    

 

The Sole is being made out of a material which has excellent characteristics. Each one will be made for every shoe individually! These take hours over hours to be cut, fixed and polished fitting perfectly to the Upper. Nails will guarantee more resistant to abrasion! The Heel is made of a bunch of leather layers and includes rubber layer for a better grip.

 

Design meets Comfort - We take care, providing a better grip for our Boots. They have Winter Resistent Soles which gives more safety.  

 

Soft Insole Cushion Leather  

But shoes are not significant enough without having comfort, guaranteeing ease and snugness - a soft cushion leather insole keeps your feet in the right position even if wearing them for hours on a long day. Both Shoes and Boots will have these soft leather insoles providing an even healthier wearing with more comfort.

 

Layer by Layer... The Heel is made of leather layers which provide a soft wearing without getting tired feet. All done for each pair within hours of work.

 

Do your feet feel not comfortable in every position throughout the day?

Comfort is a definition of proportions. Wearing the right shape and form is necessary for a great and healthy feeling throughout the day. Even your shoes have the right size; your feet could be an under pressure. That is why we offer two different cuts. They differ most in width for your forefoot. It gives you more flexibility independent of your activity. Type "E" is wider, rather than "D," which is more regular sized.   

If you never felt this kind of pressure and standard fits very well, please choose Standard „D.“ If you know that pain, please choose „E.“ It gives you a better feeling. Please ensure to get the right size, which we will ask for after the Campaign ends.

No idea? If it seems hard to decide between a standard and wider sized shoes, we recommend choosing „E.“ Adjustments, like different kinds of socks, would make the shoes fit perfectly.

 

 

 

We pay attention to a high grade of quality. Your shoes will be made in 3 main processes- Creating the Upper, Cutting the Sole and the Finishing. Every step guarantees an individual pair of leather shoes

Every shoe is made individually from scratch. The leather will be selected carefully by our shoemaker. Best Italian Calfskin meets our criteria of a resistant, light but soft leather. Flexible enough to be brought into the right shape and at the same time appropriate for our unique coloring. It's a masterpiece of art painting each pair of shoes by hand until they are colored correctly.

 

Good performance depends on a perfect fitted bottom part, the Sole. In an extensive process, we do the merging between the hand-painted leather upper and bottom of your shoes ensuring an ideal grip for comfort and elegance. Almost half of the time sacrificed for it. It is sure the toughest part. The Heel is made of leather layers which provide a soft-wearing without getting tired feet along the day.

 

Layer by layer the coloring occurs on the leather until it is perfect for being polished. Our shoemakers repeat the process as it is necessary to reach the excellent gloss. It claims a high sense of attention to transforming the last process of the finishing into a piece of art. 

 

Coordination is key - We think we have found the best team of a shoemaker who guarantees great results done with passion, love and decades of experience.

 

 

 

 

 

Support our Campaign, and you will be the significant part of creating your mind of Art - Not only will you get luxury, most elegant and high comfortable modern shoes but also help us realizing Purques in which we believe and put all our effort to be worth sharing with you.
