WHY US


DapperTiq-Why-Us

WE FOCUS ON CREATING QUALITY HANDCRAFTED SHOES

Buying a pair of quality men's shoes can be frustrating with all of the available choices in the market. However, most men don't know what to look out for when selecting a quality pair and not all men's shoes are created equal. Fast fashion and brands with high markups are dominating today's market, that's why consumers can't justify investing more on a proper pair of shoes.

We've all been there and more of us are experiencing this too. Shoes are the most essential part of every man's wardrobe. Take this first step in investing in a shoe collection that represents quality, craftsmanship and timeless style.

Goodyear Welted Construction

All of our men's shoes are Goodyear welted. It's considered the superior shoe construction method versus Blake stitch and Cemented.

Durability is the key benefit with a Goodyear welted shoe. Although, it's a more expensive and labour intensive construction method, it's worth the time and cost. No other method uses a welt; where the first seam joins the welt, upper and insole and then a second seam joins the welt to the outsole. The sole of a Blake stitched shoe is stitched direct to the insole, allowing water to seep through.

Exceptional Value

No Mass Production. No middleman. No luxury markup. No expensive retail price.

We deliver the shoes direct-to-you. Plus, you save even more with our pre-order model. We offer quality handcrafted Goodyear welted men's shoes at an exceptional value and they're 100% made in England.

Social Responsibility

We manufacture men's dress shoes that don't end up in the landfill after a year of use. No fast fashion products and we don't mass produce. It doesn't fit with our brand and we wouldn't be able to offer this level of quality. We only manufacture in limited production runs, reducing waste on raw materials and inventory costs.

We support a family-owned factory in England with a history of shoemaking dating back to the 1800's. Over the past few decades, shoe manufacturers in England went bankrupt or forced to close for business because they couldn't compete with the cost of mass produced shoes abroad. We are proud to support a local business that keeps jobs in their community.
