Sydney Brown is an ethical, sustainable, and directional, luxury footwear brand. Entirely vegan, the shoe collection is produced free of all animal products. With a holistic approach to design Sydney Brown espouses respect for the environment and the wearer without compromising on style. Shoes are hand made by artisans in her Los Angeles atelier. The shoes are consciously constructed using eco-friendly materials, including recycled uppers, reclaimed wooden soles and coconut insoles.
The collection has a paired down and understated aesthetic, with a focus on clean sculptural lines and minimal detailing. 10 years of living and working in Japan deeply inspires Brown’s aesthetic, which is infused with a Zen-like quality.
