ZACH FOOTWEAR: A COLLABORATION
Zach Footwear was first conceptualised after its creative director Robbie Thompson lived in South East London. Inspired by the diverse fashion and cultural fusion, Zach Footwears mantra is unique design and distinctive materials without undermining classic and elegant styles. Inspiration comes from finding new and exciting concepts and ideas and building forward-thinking sneaker's that are true to peoples tastes and current trends.
Our aim is to create very high quality, unique footwear at affordable prices. We wanted to create an overall customer experience with outstanding packaging and customer communication that would match a premium product.
In order to deliver on all fronts we knew collaboration would be key. In May 2020 we began working with some of the top factories in Porto's famed footwear district, who handmake our shoes to the very highest standard.
With our manufacturing relationships established we shifted focus in late 2020 to Italy, and sourcing premium and unique leathers. Our Ascot and Reflect Runner collections use a range of leathers and materials sourced from some of the most highly regarded tannery's in Italy, most notably in Tuscany. The result is our first collection - sneakers that are hand-tooled to the highest standard by local Portuguese artisans, made with Italian leather in limited quantities.
