What happens when two shoe geniuses join forces? Leonello Calvani and Patrick Ithier came together to form Ash. And they make shoes that are true originals—between the two of them they have a ton of fashion experience, unique ideas and an impeccable sense of style that has led to some of the most elegant footwear. Ash Shoes is a 10-year old company with showrooms around the world in Paris, London, Barcelona, Athens, Copenhagen, New York and Milan—their first showroom was their London flagship store that truly made their line international. They have a main line, which features shoes that have been described as “Oriental Elegance”, and a fashion sport line, a vibrant collection of funky styles. Celebrities, like Dakota Fanning and Kristin Stewart, Carmen Electra, Hillary Duff and Lindsay Lohan, just can’t get enough of their hi-top sneakers.
