At ESSEN, we’re creating a brand that upholds a more conscious pace and process – where decisions are made sustainably and with attention to every detail. The result is a collection of shoes that are aesthetically beautiful, supremely comfortable and ethically made.
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.
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
Finally I ordered my first pair of ESSĒN shoes and to be honest, they are perfect! Good quality and a perfect fit. They match my everyday outfits but are also perfect for a fancy dinner. Just a matter of time before I will buy my second pair!— Julia
Made me happy instantly. Literally opened the box, put them on my feet and they fit perfectly. I’ve never had flats that were so comfortable— I still don’t believe it. Highly recommend to everyone.— Eugena O.
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!— Alex
