OUR STORY


The heart of Ramm footwear is the magic link between style and comfort, which in our opinion, is in short supply in today’s market. Most quality English shoes are still manufactured with 19th century processes. While this look and nostalgia still appeals to some, our mission is to create classic footwear for the future utilising quality materials and modern methods that are more ‘sneaker culture’ than fashion system. Formal needn’t be unimaginative nor unhealthy; after all our feet are a true triumph of biomechanical engineering and they are not designed to spend all day in constrictive shoes.  This is modern footwear for our modern lives.

  

 Ramm footwear’s designer, Kevin Martel, is an experienced footwear and accessories designer with over 25 years experience designing footwear for some of the industry’s greatest brands.

“I am making shoes for today and selling direct to my customers. Guys that grew up in trainers are not going to tolerate dress shoes made with 19th century processes and certainly don’t want to shop that way either.”
