Lace Up With Comfort & Support
We disagree that only sneakers can be comfortable. That's why we include smooth leather lined interiors and put breathable, ultra-soft, polyurethane orthotic anti-microbial inserts in every pair of John Candors – created by a podiatrist with professional athletes in mind. Whether you’re at the office, commuting through the city, bartending, or spending a night on the town, you can be assured you’ll be comfortable on your feet all day long.
Plus, we’ve got you covered for any look. Each pair of full grain leather shoes comes with two different colored sets of laces so you can mix and match outfits.
