Hi, I'm Andrew, the founder of Penner Footwear. I love everything about shoes, and I always have since I was 8 years old falling asleep next to a new pair of Nikes like a stuffed animal. I love the design process, the materials, the leather, the smell, the craftsmanship, and the silhouette of a beautiful last. I really do!

I studied shoe making at the London College of Fashion where I received one on one mentorship from some of the most experienced shoe makers in the world. My obsession with shoe design has been poured into every aspect of Penner. I quite literally spared no expense in creating a shoe that I could not be more proud of. I couldn't have it any other way.


When you try these shoes on, and you think to yourself, "whoa, these are really comfortable". Trust me, that was no accident. That was years of experience. That was the finest leather in the world. That was clever design tweaks after countless tests. That was careful craftsmanship.


These shoes are like no other. They are the result of a lifetime of love and obsession for well crafted footwear. I genuinely hope you love them. :)
