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.
We will notify you as soon as we are back.
We make each shoe in a limited run,
for lower wastage and lower inventory costs, a benefit we pass on to you.
To make sure you don’t miss out again, you could always Pre-order.
Fits true to size. If you wear half a size, we suggest buying the next full size up for the best fit.add to bag
Whether you're having wine in Italy or a beer in Bombay - the Marino is perfect for yachts, sundowners and travels. Initially designed as a shoe for driving, its when we aren't compromising style for comfort.
For the yachts, sundowners and our travels, this is the classic driver made finer with cashmere nubuck.
We flew this all the way from Italy because the of the rich velvety look and feel of the leather. It literally molds-to-your-foot overtime. So the more you wear the more comfortable it gets.
Sometimes called bag construction or tubular construction because the leather forming the upper goes all the way around the shoe, being sewn into a bag or a tube. This makes the shoe extremely flexible and comfortable.
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.
