Founded by Grey Lucci, Greg Johnson and Jon Buscemi (with a combined history working at adidas, Zoo York, Supreme, Stussy, Oliver Peoples, DC Shoes and SNAFU between them), Gourmet shoes are an inspired take on ye olde classics with unexpected design twists added for extra bite.
Gourmet footwear epitomizes duality and ingenuity by referencing iconic American causal shapes and remixing them in high-end fabrications. It combines technical and athletic elements like air technology and memory foam insoles that mingle with quality leather from a French tannery, hand-woven custom canvases, crinkled high gloss-patent and pig skin leather, or even pony feather. The excellent materials create the sleek identity classic products, which is absolutely more than a pair of footwear to people.
