Dallas, Texas – John Candor, the premium multi-purpose handcrafted footwear brand, proudly announces the launch of its new men’s leather shoe fundraising campaign on Kickstarter. Backers can pledge anything from $89 and up and get a chance to pick one pair of shoes of any color, style, and size of choice. Backers will also be added to the John Candor VIP club to get exclusive access to limited run deals and discounts, get first look at future product designs and have the ability to place orders before anyone else and at a discounted price.
John Candor Shoes is a unique category of eco-friendly leather, cross-occasion footwear that combines the look of dress shoes with the casual comfort of sneakers. They’re incredibly versatile and offer the modern man access to a line of masterfully handcrafted shoes well-equipped for both work and play. Plus, each pair comes packed with premium yet affordable features that don’t need to sacrifice style for comfort (or vice versa).
The shoes themselves are meticulously handcrafted and made with full grain and top grain leather (inside and out), which also improves breathability. The antibacterial orthotic insoles are designed by a podiatrist that provide all day foot support and shock absorption. Each pair comes with two laces to change things up for your next dress out. Anti-slip thread combines superbly with a cool outsole for any weather or occasion. Each pair of John Candors weigh less than 2 pounds and are noticeably light on the feet and in the bag.
John, co-founder of John Candor says about the company, “At John Candor, we have always been drawn to artisan crafted leather goods and strongly believe in making affordable leather goods that are stylish, functional and exquisite. Over the past two years, we have invested thousands of dollars and countless hours into fine tuning, sourcing eco-friendly raw materials, and developing our products. Obsessed with quality and focused on affordable pricing, the John Candor team continues to innovate and develop new designs so that you too can enjoy unique artisan crafted leather goods without having to break the bank.“

About John Candor:
John Candor is a veteran-owned, small family business based out of Dallas, Texas. The company was started by two friends and after they had made a trip to Colombia several years ago. Tired of having to choose between the comfort of sneakers and the style of dressier shoes or paying an arm and a leg for both, they searched and partnered with third generation artisan shoemakers to create John Candor.
Together they developed men’s shoes that encompass the best of both worlds. These are top-of-the-line shoes that include features that cost a premium or aren’t offered in established brands, such as exquisitely handcrafted products, full or top grain leather, orthotic insoles, and an additional pair of different colored shoelaces.
John Candor has deep personal ties to Colombia and are committed to supporting their economy with the business and other post conflict community-building initiatives.
