Our Story

 

 

May Anthony is a contemporary men's footwear brand specializing in the design and production of custom handmade loafers for men and women following ethical and sustainable practices.
 
ELEGANCE MEETS VERSATILITY
Our Louie handmade loafers are very versatile and yet elegant and stylish. They are perfect with tuxedos, denim, shorts or anything in between.
They are ideal for weddings, bar mitzvah, proms, graduations, casual events and any occasion.
 
PERSONALIZED DETAIL
Every single pair of our Louie handmade loafers is completely made to order per customer. As part of the experience, you get to decide which design you want, the colour of the shoes and even add your own initials or logo/crest - this can be either embroidered or handpainted.
 
EXCEPTIONAL CRAFTSMANSHIP
May Anthony Loafers are individually handcrafted by highly skilled indigenous African artisans who have had the knowledge of shoe-making passed down from generations ensuring we create proper handmade and elegant slippers loafers, just like the original, Arbiter elegante.
 
 
SUSTAINABILITY
Every brand in the fashion industry casually throws round the buzzword; sustainability but not at May Anthony. We are all about complete transparency and that is something we are proud of.
As a brand, we engage in work practices that are fair, legal and we ensure the decent treatment of our workforce. On the average, our artisans are paid more than 3x the minimum wage thereby ensuring economic stability and empowerment for themselves and their families.
 
We have served customers in every single continent around the world. We cater to a diverse clientele regardless of race, political or religious values, tribe, religion or values.
 
 
VISION
To have our pieces worn in every major city around the world.
 
MISSION
To create high quality bespoke footwear, leather goods and apparel.
 
We hope you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy offering them to you. If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
