About Marcus De
My Grandpa was an inspirational man who loved his shoes. He urged me to follow my dreams and passions.
Marcus De is named in his honor and encapsulates a spirit but never prescribes to a specific look. An uncompromising blend of classic English design and craftsmanship with a London feel and contemporary twist.
Driven by an ambition to create a product and a brand sustainable over time with a focus on quality, craftsmanship and understated luxury. Our shoes are designed to last a lifetime. I want to make sure that all my products stay “alive and kicking” for as long as possible and this is achieved through meticulous attention to detail from iconic styles to our reinterpreted classics.
Keeping traditions alive, each pair is handcrafted by artisans in Northampton, England, the centre of luxury English shoe making for centuries. Made in very limited numbers, our shoes are loved by discerning people all over the world.
My vision is to bring great shoes and accessories designed with passion and made by craftsmen to you wherever you are, through just a few luxury stores around the world. I hope you will follow me on this wonderful journey, far into the future.
