    Hi everyone, we'd like to officially introduce ourselves to the SF Community. Thank you Fok and the SF team for having us here!

    Jonathan Abel is a new brand, founded on the ethos of creating beautiful and functional products that are essential for a gentleman's everyday living.

    We started our journey in footwear, striving to create classic shoes made with premium materials and quality craftsmanship. Our leathers are from Tanneries du Puy, Annonay and Weinheimer, no doubt names most of you are familiar with. We chose a small factory in Portugal that has been family-run for three generations to manufacture these shoes, because of their attention to detail, and willingness to indulge our ideas.

    Our RTW collection consists of both classic designs, as well as a seasonal limited edition collection, where we reinterpret classics with different materials and finishes (such as patina). While most of our collection is Goodyear welted, we also have several items which are Blake stitched to offer a wider range of options. You can shop the entire collection at www.jonathan-abel.com.

    Our Create Your Style program is our made-to-order service where we have over 5 million possible combinations for you to choose from. This capability is unfortunately not available on our website yet (we're working on it!), but you can always check in with us at [email protected] and we'll be happy to help.

    As a hello to the SF community, we'd like to offer a special discount: just use the code SF15 to get 15% off.

    We're including some of shots from our recent photoshoot (some not yet seen, even on social media!), so enjoy! :)

    Always at your service,
    Jonathan Abel Team

    Thanks for the welcome!

    Unfortunately, at the moment we don't do cordovan, but that's certainly an option we are exploring.

    Do you have different widths? I wear 8.5eee (US size) or 8H (UK size).

    Yes, we do have different widths available through our MTO program. We'll definitely be able to accommodate your size.

    Perhaps drop us an email at [email protected] so we can help you through the process.

    Welcome to you guys! Looking forward to your future offerings and designs. The patinas are nice.
    One thing I would note, is that it would be helpful if you guys offer photos of the sole on the site for the shoes.

    Additionally, for the leathers, which of the RTW shoes offer leathers with Weinheimer Leder?

    Here's a little shot of our Baltimore sneakers in cognac patina. We didn't just want to make dress shoes, we wanted to be stylish during play as well.

    Thanks for the welcome!

    Noted on the request for pictures of the sole - will tell our photographer to get crackin' on that. In our earlier post, we did have one with a picture of the sole, if that helps!

    Some of the options in black use Weinheimer leder - the others use leathers from other tanneries.

    These are absolute gorgeous and more or less what I've been looking for, so kopped a pair. Didn't make the $500 threshold for free shipping but shipping came to $10, which I found to be most reasonable. The SF15 code was very welcome as well.

    Maybe I'm blind, but didn't find a size chart on the product page? I'm a pretty standard size (EU42) though so hope it all turns out well. Excited!

    I think I saw your order come through :D Thanks for the support!

    We do have a size guide (it's here: https://jonathan-abel.com/pages/size-guide) and you can find it under the "Discover" tab. But thanks for the reminder - we'll include a link to it on every product page.

    Will be shipping your shoes out soon.. hope you enjoy them!
