n.d.c made by hand
n.d.c. made by hand was created in 2001 by two friends passionate about shoes. After more than 10 years in the shoe business, they felt it was time to start making the kind of shoes that they themselves wanted to wear. With this in mind they had 4 main principles; Simplicity, quality, originality & constructional know how.
The brand name n.d.c. – nom de code / code name, reflects their philosophy that the strength of the brand is the product itself. On the stand at their first trade show was a pair of their own n.d.c. brogues which, after deciding that they looked just a little too perfect, were washed in their home washing machine (yes, seriously). The result was beaten-up, washed shoes with a whole personality of their own like nothing else.
Artisans in family ateliers craft n.d.c. shoes using leathers selected from tanneries in Tuscany, England & America to create truly individual and timeless footwear.
