A TALE WORTH TELLING

Their story

Based in Paris, Monterey is the little sister of older brand Pete Sorensen, also founded by couple and business partners Camille Houdreaux and Kevin Sempaggi. Based in Paris, Monterey Shoes plays with the concept of "living in the moment" and introduces one new model of men's footwear per season. Firm believers that there's value in consuming slowly and better, Monterey contributes to our wardrobes at its own pace: meet our first "Slow Brand."

QUALITY IN THE MAKING

The process

Proudly Parisian, Monterey Shoes is a welcome reminder that sometimes it's best to live in the moment and enjoy one thing at a time - even if it means sticking to one pair of shoes all season long. Offering beautifully handcrafted, carefully made footwear (or "design for feet," as Monterey calls it) for the modern man, Monterey releases one particular model of shoe per season in multiple colour and texture varieties. Handmade by expert craftsmen in the brand's Italian atelier, each pair of Monterey Shoes is a traditionally-created step towards to responsible consumption and conscious living.
