Our Story

We've bypassed traditional brick and mortar retail and have made shopping for gentlemen's footwear simple and easy.

Our story

Dapper Lane began with a dream; to produce exquisite and high-quality leather goods.

We are a leather-tech company making custom handcrafted footwear and accessories using innovative processes to eliminate waste in leather goods production.

Our product line has grown to include quality custom handcrafted leather shoes, bags and accessories, and we’re finding a great sense of purpose along the way. We hope our offerings speak to your own lifestyle and goals, and invite you to share this journey with us.

We at Dapper Lane set out to design, make and deliver comfortable gentlemen's footwear for a fraction of the cost of other major retailers.

Our values

Quality leather goods in the form of bags and shoemaking is a disappearing art. In an era of mass-produced goods where quantity outweighs quality, Dapper Lane prioritises the latter.

Made To Order: We don't mass produce, we handcraft every footwear upon order. We don't have stock or warehouses of unsold shoes. If the precious leather is not needed, it doesn't get handcrafted.

Custom Handcrafted: Every pair is custom handcrafted for each of our customers. No two feet are exactly the same, so neither are our shoes. Every design detail is carefully considered to let the quality and fit of the shoes take center stage.

Responsible Production: We value the quality of old handcrafting tradition. Our passion for quality footwear lies deep in our support of the European artisans and master handcrafters that we work with. That means great attention to aesthetics and quality. We are real makers. All our handcrafted shoes feature pristine Italian leather, suede and sartorial fabrics, sourced via our leather artisans from sustainable sources.

Meticulously designed and handcrafted for an amazingly comfortable shoes.

Our journey so far!

At Dapper Lane, we believe that every man's unique personality should be given the attention it truly deserves. We accept made to order customisation to reflect the true style of our unique customers, allowing you to be part of the true shoemaking process.

The way most leather shoes and accessories are being made today is a tangle web of over production, inflated prices, middlemen and sales cycles. We handcraft every footwear to order and deliver directly to and specially for our customers.

When it comes to the art of producing exquisite leather goods, we are the astute gentlemen.
