My love for shoes goes back as long as I can remember. I grew up watching my dad have a major influence in the boot industry, and knew that one day I wanted to make my own mark in the industry as well. I spent time learning and observing the painstaking details and craftsmanship that defines a truly excellent shoe.
Together with my wife, Jacqueline, who has an obsession for quality and eye for style, we dreamed about making a product that was a cut above the rest, without the outrageous retail price tag. Making a luxury product like leather available to anyone: leather for the people. With that vision in mind, Marciante and Company was born.
We've selected top grade tanneries and small batch factories to produce designer-level quality at a fraction of the high-end fashion cost.
With honest pricing and integrity in our design, this brand is an extension of our family legacy. We're hoping to turn this industry upside down.
By the time you're 70 years old you will have put approximately 70,000 miles on your feet. With that much work, they deserve to be treated right.
Your feet are one of the most often overlooked and under appreciated parts of the human anatomy. Each foot has approximately 28 bones, 35 different joints, 120 ligaments, 20 muscles, and roughly 7,000 nerve endings.
They take care of you. So we're giving the utmost attention not just on fashion, but on comfort, support, durability and using quality natural materials. Bringing you the best of both worlds in fashion and function.
Our shoes are made with genuine leather and other natural products used for comfort like cork that over time will form to the shape of your foot. So given some time, these shoes will have an honest custom fit specifically for your feet.
We found an Italian inspired factory that we love in Leon Mexico, known as the leather shoe capital of the western hemisphere. Their level of artistry and expertise goes back generations, and they produce some of the most beautiful leather goods we've ever seen. To this day they still do a vast majority of the work by hand. With excellence and craftsmanship being so important to us, it was a no-brainer. They believe in us, and we believe in them.
We've spent hours upon hours and a good amount of our own personal resources researching, testing, developing, and prototyping to create a line of products that we take great pride in and we think you will too.
We're at a point where we are now ready for production and have our tanneries and factories on standby. Here's where we need your help! We'll use the funds from this campaign to fund our first full run of inventory to begin fulfilling orders and take our online store live!
We want to blend timeless style with innovative design, in hopes of creating something for everyone. Leather for the people.
We have hand selected the leathers and materials to put into our products, and have gone through rounds of refinement to make sure we aren't leaving any stone unturned when it comes to quality and comfort. That paired with a passion for innovation and design, we think will result in your new favorite shoe brand!
We've reduced our prices for the duration of the campaign and will cover the shipping as well!
We truly believe that you will love our products, and we're so thankful for the support and encouragement. We're excited to share this journey with such a great community, and will proudly disrupt the industry to bring you the best of both quality and pricing.
Risks and challenges
We've worked day and night for months now with an incredible team, and some great relationships with our tanneries and factories. We feel like we have the quality to a point that we really feel great about, and have hand selected the leathers we want to use.
We understand and acknowledge that any project comes with it's own risk and challenges. Even with our planning, there is always a chance of circumstances that may be out of our control. If we are met with such circumstances, we promise to communicate to you with full transparency, our backers, and work to bring resolution to all issues in a timely manner.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
