For nine years Roland worked as the Creative Director to one of the most highly regarded and influential shoe designers of the last 30 years – Oliver Sweeney. Working alongside Oliver he learned everything there was to know about the craft of designing, styling and producing contemporary handmade shoes. But that wasn’t enough for Roland. He loved the skill and craftsmanship involved in designing men’s shoes, but realised there were a lot of similar looking shoes out there. He wanted to create something different. Something that stood out. Adding his own particular take to what a modern shoe should be, he has created a distinctive range of well made, quality men’s shoes that are big on style and individuality.
