The crazy shoe maker
Averse to prevailing trends, Jan Jansen Amsterdam is a real trailblazer with revolutionary designs that are always different from everything else and, importantly, never ordinary.
‘Nobody wants Jan Jansens without attitude.’
Given his interest in art, it is not surprising that his shoes often balance on the border of art and design. In addition, from an early age, the fashion icon has had a passion for designing and making his own shoes, right down to the lasts. Jan is one of very few shoe designers who design their own lasts and heel constructions. He always knows how to transform his sketches into shoes that meet his wishes down to the last detail, while maintaining fit and comfort.
