what we believe

Our Core Values

Take Personal Ownership​

We take great pride and personal ownership of not just every product we make, but in HOW they are made. We want every customer to love their products as much as we do, that's why we never take shortcuts, honor our commitments, admit when we can do things better and correct it.

Leave No One Behind

There is more to success than just the bottom line. For the 50+ families we work with, we will never compromise their well being for a profit margin and ensure each one receives fair pay with benefits, training opportunities, and safe working conditions. Their success is our success and your success.

Be Good Stewards

This beautiful earth God created is not our own and we have the ultimate responsibility of making sure it stays beautiful for future generations. We go to great lengths – and pay higher production costs – to ensure our practices and suppliers meet strict environmental standards, processes and certifications.

Our Commitments

Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness

We started John Candor to make the best of the talents God gave us, have the freedom to pursue our passions and provide good paying jobs for our local communities so they can do the same.

This is what I have observed to be good: that it is appropriate for a person to eat, to drink and to find satisfaction in their toilsome labor... Eccles. 5:18


We pay higher prices to get better handpicked raw materials. All raw materials are sourced locally (US or Colombia).

Our products will last you for years to come and include our 3 year warranty.

Attainable Pricing

For men just like us who want to look good, wear comfortable shoes and stand tall without breaking the bank.

Environmentally Certified

Our certified leather tanners incorporate on-site water treatment plants that recycle, purify, and reuse the water needed for the curing and tanning process. Any unused water is returned to its original source in an even cleaner state.
