Ten-Second Takeaway

Koch & Co. is a footwear start-up based in Berlin, that offers a curated collection of handcrafted, Goodyear-welted shoes for men.

Shoe Stopper

Launched in 2016 by Vishesh Kochher and Helen Stead, Koch & Co. brings almost four generations of experience of working in the shoe industry in Agra to Europe, showcasing the incredible craftsmanship and heritage. Providing men with quality dress shoes, {that age beautifully over time, we are told} Koch & Co. is available online for you to peruse and buy.

They will also be available at KNL at GK2, Apr 18 onwards.

What we love about these shoes {apart from the shoes themselves} is that each pair comes with a complimentary leather shoe balm, two silk monogrammed shoe bags, and their signature pull drawer box. The full grain shoes will last for years, since they use a Goodyear-welted construction method. You can even get them embossed with your initials at no extra cost.

Argentinian leather is used to make the sole and the high grade masonite is used to make the heels {excellent support, we hear}.

Handmade Handy

Each pair is made by hand, and only a few pairs are made at any given time. You can check out their shoes at KNL, where you can reserve your pair, and they will be sent over to you in three to four weeks.

We love the Julian and Aiden, the Oxford Brogue and Captoe shoes as well as the Charlie loafer for Spring. They ship across the world and we would recommend that you get your hands on a pair.
