Our Story

We created Jonathan Abel to enable and empower. 

 

We enable confidence. 

We believe that finding your sole mate shouldn't be a compromise between style, quality, comfort and price, so we set about creating products that check all the boxes. Using only the finest craftsmanship and quality materials, we create products that make you look good and feel good every day, wherever you go.

We enable comfort. 

Made with full grain Italian and French leather, with soft cushion leather inserts that mold to your feet with prolonged wear. The result? Sole mates that will go everywhere with you. 

We enable Creators of Style. 

We recognise that every man is unique with his own idiosyncrasies, and his true sole mate is one which he has a hand in creating, crafting a style that speaks to and shows who he truly is. 

How we do it.

We make products for all men, suited to work, play and travel lifestyles. We believe in slow fashion - where speed gives way to thoughtful design, quality materials are prized and the craftsman is honored for the works of his hands. We work with small factories that are family-owned for generations and who, like us, believe that good products are made with heart and soul. 

Direct to You. 

We don't believe in premium price tags, so we've cut out the middlemen in order to bring you made-in-Europe, Goodyear welted shoes with affordable prices. We work directly with our factories and tanneries to bring you the best quality at the best prices.
