    ESSEN was founded as a response to a fashion cycle that overproduces more than it carefully crafts, chases trends more than it determines classics, and wastes more than it sustains. At ESSEN, we’re slowing down that cycle so that we can focus on making every piece essential.

    Fashion has a waste problem, we want to fix it. One of the things that makes us different from other footwear brands is that we produce in small batches or entirely on demand.

    What our customers are saying

    These are the best boots I own. Beautiful and so comfortable! They're easy to match with my entire wardrobe, fantastic. Love the colour and the leather, I'm sure they'll last a lifetime :-)!

    — Karin

    I have three pairs of ESSEN shoes and these are just as beautiful, well made and comfortable as the other two.

    — Jessica H.

    I loved these shoes before I even tried them on. The leather is buttery soft and supple and they looked so elegantly minimalist in the box. On my feet they’re like slippers and are sooooo comfortable. Comfort and elegant in the same shoe is a win all around.

    — Shanna

    These loafers are my go-to shoe, super comfortable and hard-wearing and unlike anything else I've seen. I have been wearing them with dresses, skirts, trousers, jeans at work and on the weekend for over two years and they're still going strong!
