2. MATERIAL SOURCING
We carefully curated an exclusive selection of shoe production experts to cooperate with in Portugal and Italy. Sourcing partners with transparent and fair production standards that leave the least impact possible on mother nature is a top priority at Kingsley Crew.
Our goal is to create luxury shoes that feel as good as they look. We do this by thoroughly testing new models on ourselves and children. If they are not good enough for us then they are definitely are not good enough for our customers. We make improvements until we get it right.
4. ORTHOPEDIC ANALYSIS
Once we are satisfied with the design, craftsmanship and materials we take the new shoe model to our cooperation partners, locally renowned and respected orthopedic specialists and technicians. They independently review the new model and give us their analysis results.
5. CUSTOMER FEEDBACK
By engaging with our customer we are able to make further improvements to our designs, shoe fit and comfy feel.
6. ADAPTIONS & IMPROVEMENTS
We are determined to make quality products that work for our customers. Every new model is not only tested by us and orthopedic technicians but also re-worked and adaptations are made according to direct customer feedback regarding fit and feel.
SHOE MAKING ARTISANS
We have great respect for the craft of local Portuguese shoe artisans. Shoe-making is one of societies oldest crafts therefore it is with great pride and excitement that we watch our shoe designs being created in the production workshop.
We are learning so much about the shoe making craft and history of the shoe industry.
By understanding how our shoes are made we can better identify where to improve and how to incorporate fairer, more sustainable production alternatives as well as the use of recycled materials.
