Armin Oehler designs luxury leather products at the epitome of class and style. The small batch design of men’s dress shoes with Southern U.S. influences highlight classic styles for the modern man.
A hand sewn shoe with a Goodyear Welt allows for re-crafting of the sole for a sustainable footwear option. Our cork insole provides cushion and shock absorbing properties for all-day under-foot support.
Discerning customers, who maintain their shoes with proper care and maintenance, can have their shoes resoled to last for decades. At Armin Oehler we believe every sole has a story.
A well-crafted shoe is a wardrobe stable for a gentlemen of refined tastes.
Whether your style is an artisanal hand painted wholecut or an über-light suede hybrid, we have a shoe to fit your lifestyle.
