Founder of Koch & Co., a men's footwear company that produces Goodyear welted shoes that are made to last. Based in Berlin.
Each pair of Koch & Co. shoes are designed with simplicity in mind. In an age of mass production and overwhelming choice, our focus is on the luxury of possessing the ultimate basics, that have been carefully designed and made using centuries of refinement and skill.
Our shoes are made using Goodyear welted construction, which means with proper care and attention, they can last for years while developing a beautiful patina over time. We use full grain leather for the uppers, Argentinian vegetable tanned leather for the sole and a soft, calf leather for the lining. When combined, these materials provide maximum support and durability and become more comfortable with each wear.
