A completely personal philosophy - born from a multifaceted and cosmopolitan history - is proposed through Watson & Parker shoes. It is about a story that has the world as origin and, for that reason, it cannot be reduced to a single interpretation. Instead, it needs to build and 'rebuild' itself in the essence of those who are experiencing it. Eclectic but also defined, universal but also concrete: our philosophy grows with experiences and get fed by emotions. Watson & Parker is aimed precisely at those who love to travel, in the name of light-heartedness and serenity; at those who are looking forward to setting sail as soon as possible for a new adventure. This new adventure begins when you put on a pair of these shoes, designed to enjoy the holiday at its best. They contribute to the uniqueness of the moment.
Not far from their Covent Garden Club.
There was, and still is, the bookshop that Edward Stanford founded in 1853, a treasure trove of ancient maps and log books, already a destination for famous explorers, such as Robert Falcon Scott and David Livingstone.
They embarked shortly after on a ship of the British navy.
On a cold September morning: they sailed in the balance between clear days and gusts of wind, they reached unknown and distant lands.
They looked away, farther than they thought they could go.
Every time they released a mooring, they abandoned a constraint of their time: they listened to everything there was to hear, they understood everything there was to understand.
They returned freer and more aware.
All the experiences made, they brought them sewn on: in the ways, in the clothes, in the original shoes that they had designed and made by hand, to move in those unexplored places.
Watson & Parker, precisely: shoes that contain the essentiality and the British concreteness within the spirit and emotions of the world.
Each pair of Watson & Parker is the result of a careful stylistic research where all the Italian craftsmanship has met the passion for change and continuous transformation. Even the smallest detail becomes a fundamental and essential part of the whole process to produce our shoes. The essence of the imagination and the artisan professionalism are then able to get united perpetually. “San Crispino” stitching is the exclusive curiosity of these shoes. The heritage of the most ancient manufacturing traditions imposes that each component is jointed together through a hand-sewn thread, without support of any machinery.
