Craft, Not Hype

Producing a limited quantity of hand-made shoes for select retailers and personal clients throughout the world, Esquivel is able to tell a story with each pair through signature hand finishes and a refined finesse developed over two decades of practice. Leathers are sourced from the finest tanneries in the world, and every line cut and stitch sewn by hand to create an unmistakable footprint.

George Esquivel, California-based designer and craftsman, operates his namesake brand from an atelier in Orange County, California. Trained in shoemaking, George designs with a hands-on approach, working closely with his team of craftsmen.
