Here at Jonathan Abel, our ethos is simple: purposefully create beautiful, functional products essential for a gentleman’s everyday living.

We believe that creation for creation's sake is futile; creation requires careful arrangement of requisite elements in the best possible way to achieve a particular purpose.

We strive to design the products which become invisible in your life, making them wonderfully and with a hint of reverence to the craftsmanship honed over generations.

And because craftsmanship is of utmost importance to us, we only work with artisans who have spent years honing their craft. Our shoes are made in a small factory that has been family-run for three generations, finished by hand using the Goodyear welt construction method to ensure quality and longevity for each pair.

Micha Commeren said, "The function of design is to let design function" - and that's the philosophy we live by.
