Ash shoes have attitude. Founded in 2000 by Leonello Calvani and Patrick Ithier, this Italian footwear label supplies hypnotically hip looks in bold silhouettes ranging from ankle booties to over-the-knee motorcycle boots to the Bowie — a wedge sneaker made of suede and Velcro. Drawing on the best of the founders' native Italian and French cultures, Ash creates shoes that combine the tradition of Bolognese tanneries and cobblers with the "je ne sais quoi" of Parisian fashion. Glamorous, ironic, and cosmopolitan, these shoes are made for walking.
