Designer brands spend only 12.5% of the selling price on the actual making of the shoe.
The rest 87.5% is added because of Middlemen. Retail store costs. Glossy ads.
That didn’t make sense to us as well.
At BARON&BAY, in our mission to perfect the essentials we decided to go direct-to-consumer and online only, so what you actually pay for is more premium materials, more meticulous craft and less of the bullshit.
We are on our way to Italy to get another run of our leathers.

for lower wastage and lower inventory costs, a benefit we pass on to you.

What do we want from a work shoe - we questioned, tried and tested. The result?
As essential as your morning cup of coffee, the Arno is born for long days and relaxed evenings. Perfect with Chinos or Denim, it's literally our go-everywhere, go-on-everything shoe.
Perfect for work and evenings after, it's literally our go-everywhere, go-on-everything shoe.
Often the most important part of a shoe that lends comfort and where your feet actually rest on – gets ignored and
compromised with synthetic leather. We’ve worked the hardest on this one – Our signature butter as we call it is a mix of
signature padding and an Italian calf lining. What makes it special is you can go sockless, without having to worry about
sweat and odour, and literally being able to feel as soft as butter the whole day.
Don’t take our word for it- just for kicks, call for a pair, step in and feel it for yourself.

We flew this nappa all the way from Italy because apart from being soft and yet sturdy,
it literally molds-to-your-foot overtime.
So the more you wear the more comfortable it gets.
We chose a true moccasin construction for the everyday shoe,
taking up to 8 hours to let the leather pass underneath the foot-bed and the insole.
As it turns out, if fine leather surrounds the foot completely, it can take advantage of its natural qualities like -
breathability, sweat-wicking quality and flexibility
all things important for something that is going to be worn often
