Los Angeles-based shoe designer Jim Barnier strives for a certain distinctiveness in his product. His shoes are all made by hand. His signature elements are in the functionality and authenticity of the make. They are meant to be and feel rugged and feminine all at once. Each pair is specially handcrafted and the leather only gets better with wear. Jim's shoes are made by old-world Armenian craftsmen. Everything from the special leathers to the stitched soles makes each pair unique and slightly different.
