What you do for the company?

Good question, and one better answered by those below. The reality is that I created this living thing when I migrated to the Land Of The Free many years ago, and gathered together the amazing people who give it life today.

What is a hobby/interest/passion of yours?


Very sadly, my passion is these damn things we wear on our feet. Can’t help myself. It’s a disease that is hereditary, in that my great grandfather started making shoes when Victoria was his Queen. I love them, I am obsessed with them, and more than anything I love what they mean to the people who wear them. As I said, I’m a sad old bastard with no hope of redemption.

A flame shoe which we developed first, was copied often, and became an integral part of many people’s lives.
