It is with great pride that I share with you my most recent collaboration: a pair of shoes I designed with Allen Edmonds, a shoe company with 90 years of rich American heritage. Allen Edmonds, still based in Port Washington, WI, and still producing everything locally, prides itself in making shoes for the officers of World War II to wear with their dress uniforms and in being the shoes that presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton wore to their inaugurations. My shoes came to me impeccably finished, and as a testament to their craftsmanship, I wore them out to the East Village for the first time and felt nary a pinch on my feet clad only with thin foot socks.
Thank you, Allen Edmonds, for this wonderful opportunity. Let’s do the perfect brown shoe soon?
The Dandy Project x Allen Edmonds shoes are available via special order; you can get in touch with Allison Meyer for more information.
