Once-upon-a-time in LA there was a boyfriend-girlfriend design team. They saw a niche in the bohemian fashionista world and stepped in to repair the void in eccentric styling and renegade charm with one style of canvas shoe with a rubber-capped toe. Since that beginning in 1993, loads of new offerings have hit the streets to keep independant-minded individuals outfitted.
The demanding work of industries such as mining, logging and farming required footwear which was tough enough to outlast harsh working conditions, but Charles Beckman in Red Wing, Minnesota, envisioned a shoe that was also comfortable enough for the hardworking people who wore them. In 1905 he opened a company that would define the work shoe market. Now, over 110 years on, the commitment to producing only the highest grade footwear remains as unwavering as Beckman's original vision.

Robert Zur honed his expertise by designing for such renowned labels as Amalfi and women's Cole Haan. What you'll see when you look at a pair of his shoes are thoughtful details and imaginative design. What you'll feel when you try a pair on is true glove leathers and calfskin.
