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 flew this all the way from Italy because the corrected grain leather has a high shine look and the leather is very sturdy, which gives your dress shoes a long life.
In this construction, the upper is worked over the insole and then the sole is attached with adhesive under high pressure. This gives your dress shoes a longer life and maintains shape.
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.
