Our promise is to restore the value of footwear by creating meaningful essentials: A collection of zero-compromise shoes. We can’t live without shoes, but we can make the pieces we choose to invest in count. Our shoes are meticulous handcraft, requiring delicate natural resources. Every shoe has a story, makes an impact and has a cost. With full transparency we want to give the whole picture of our manufacturing process, helping both us at Yves Carter Studios and you as an individual understand the effects of our decisions and start making better ones. We break down and trace our shoes to their roots and we open the doors to our factories so you can learn about the skill and devotion required to create them.
