Paul Evans New York

They say that the mark of a great first impression is down to the footwear a man wears. Paul Evans’ vision to introduce luxury footwear with a contemporary appeal to the modern gentlemen to aide those first impressions

Paul Evans have been creating their range of luxury footwear for a couple of seasons now, blending a perfect mix of business formality with contemporary styling. Their focus is on making comfortable, stylish shoes that mix heritage looks with a more contemporary approach using high quality materials. This has seen their collection grow to include impeccable toe capped Oxfords and wholecut dress shoes.

Hand made, using skilled Italian shoe makers to produce their high quality footwear, Paul Evans shoes have a beautiful slim shape with a striking silhouette and exquisite detailing. Using high-grade Italian calfskin leather and matching leather soles, including a leather lining, the shoes have everything you’d demand for in a luxury shoe.

It’s refreshing to find a brand that has real confidence in their product and maintain a clear vision of wanting to supply the modern gentleman with superb footwear. That confidence will rub off and make you feel ready and sure of yourself every time to enter a meeting. Networking will never be the same.
