SHOE THE BEAR is probably not a name you’ll easily forget, something about it makes you think twice about whether you said it correctly. There’s nothing untoward about this Scandinavian brand though. Founded in 2007 by Thomas Frederiksen and Jakob Fuglsang, they decided they wanted to create a footwear brand that fused street art with canvas sneakers.
They’re way beyond canvas sneakers now, moving on to dominate the men’s footwear industry with their leather chukka boots and sandy suede chelsea boots. Their strategy was to design and manufacture stylish on-trend footwear that was also comfortable and functional. This simple game plan has led them to success on an international level, selling in prestigious retailers all over the world, h as John Anthony!
