ESSĒN 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. They strive to slow down that cycle and focus on making every piece essential.
Their shoes are hardworking classics that are aesthetically beautiful, supremely comfortable and ethically made. They allow women to move seamlessly and confidently through their day, without compromising on style, comfort and craftsmanship.
All styles are handmade in Italy, Portugal and Spain in solar-powered factories by expert artisans who have been making shoes for generations. They’re made in small production runs and in limited releases, consciously slowing down the fashion cycle and making every style a carefully considered wardrobe staple.
