The Love Jules Leather Shoe Company is a small-run shoe & boot manufacturer based in East Vancouver, British Columbia Canada.
Our team is small, consisting of founders Julia (Jules) Vagelatos & Joshua Blodans, as well as an extremely talented production support team that varies in size from 3 – 5 individuals based on our fluctuating production needs.
Our 1,500 square foot studio is situated within the Vancouver Community Laboratory (CoLab), a two-story artist/ artisan co-operative located in East Vancouver’s industrial “Hastings Sunrise” district. Our big blue building is a hub of creativity housing private studio space for makers & fine artists alike as well as a fully equipped (members’ only) woodworking & metalworking ‘shop.
Our studio is open to the public, by appointment only.
Our bespoke-fit made-to-order shoes and boots are wholly handcrafted by us, in-house, using only the finest locally sourced components. We pride ourselves not only on our unique designs and fine craftsmanship, but the fact we offer a footwear purchasing experience unlike most. Every three months (July, October, January, and April) we announce the release of a new limited run (50 pairs only) shoe/ boot design, in both a men’s and women’s silhouette, available for purchase online (only) on a first-come first-serve basis.
We ship internationally (6 – 8 week turnaround times), have an extremely supportive local clientele, and on occasion we’re given the opportunity to partner with friends/ like-minded brands on small-run collaborative projects typically made available exclusively through their sales distribution channels.
In summary, we’re small, and our output is… limited. We will never shoe the world, but we will outfit a (small) army of shoe and boot buyers not satisfied with today’s everyday run-of-the-mill off-the-shelf options. We really have just one single mission, and that’s to make killer kicks for those select few who value something a little different than… everyone else.
We’re the Love Jules Leather Shoe Company.
