10 Reasons People Love Beckett Simonon ShoesWritten by Tigre Haller
Finding high-quality, well made shoes that are constructed to last for many years - if not a lifetime - shouldn’t be as difficult as it is. Beckett Simonon takes the guesswork out of the equation by offering only the best selection possible. This is something thousands of people have come to expect and appreciate.
Here are 10 reasons why:
1. They’re great foundation shoes
If you’re new to the men’s shoe game, it’s easy to get confused and frustrated about which ones to start out with. Beckett Simonon takes the stress away by offering a carefully considered selection of accessible styles which can serve as the foundation of your collection.
Whether you’re looking for your first pair of dress shoes, need something for a special occasion or are in the market for a business-like style, Beckett Simonon shoes fit the bill.
For instance, you can never go wrong with a pair of timeless cap-toe Oxfords, get a little edgy with some Monkstraps, or tone things down a bit with Derbies. For more guidance on how you can build up your shoe rotation, take a look at the article 5 Shoes Every Man Should Have.
2. There’s a style for everyone
Are you formal, casual, buttoned-up, free spirited or whimsical? Maybe you’re all of those things. Beckett Simonon’s ever-growing collection of shoes, boots and sneakers offers a ton of variety, and you’re sure to find more than one pair that suits your mood.
A pair of Valencia Wholecuts will help you stand up and stand out even in the most dressy situations. Cohen Loafers pay homage to the classic Penny Loafer, but boast a modern profile. Morgen Trainers recall the original German Army Trainers (GATs) with a few unique flourishes. Dowler Boots in pull-up leather brings out your rugged side, while the Easton Side-Zips showcase refinement. You’re not a one-note being, and your wardrobe shouldn’t be either. Let your imagination flow and build up a versatile shoe collection.
3. They’re ethically made
From our Made-to-Order business model of only making items which already have an owner, to the sourcing of materials and the crafting and packaging of your items, every aspect of Beckett Simonon’s production is calibrated to be ethically, morally and environmentally sound. Our materials suppliers have to comply with our Code of Conduct, and we source the leather for our dress shoes from an Italian tannery which is Gold-Rated by the Leather Working Group (LWG).
We do not engage in or condone discrimination of any kind, child or prison labor. Our team of artisans are treated with the respect and honor they deserve. In addition to being provided with safe and hygienic workspaces, they all receive salaries which are far above the minimum wage, healthcare, pension contributions, paid annual vacation, and other comprehensive benefits. Additionally, the shoe workshop offers an apprenticeship program that provides the opportunity for aspiring shoemakers to learn a sustainable craft and continue practicing this art for generations to come.
4. They’re handcrafted with high-quality materials
Each pair of Beckett Simonon shoes is handcrafted by a team of skilled artisans, and involves over 150 manual steps. They use only the highest-quality materials, such as supple and durable full-grain leather, nappy water-repellent suede, smooth vachetta leather linings, strong leather bends, natural rubber or a rubber compound for the soles. These materials have been specifically selected for their ability to hold-up over time, and become better with age.
5. They’re extremely comfortable
Typically, new leather shoes are uncomfortable at first and require a lengthy breaking in period. Not so with Beckett Simonon shoes. Time and again customers have commented on how surprised they are to discover how comfortable they are straight out of the box. Customers like Rob McElroy, who said, “Honestly, the most comfortable dress shoes I've owned and I have been a Church’s and Allen Edmonds fan for over 30 years. Plus, they are extremely well made and very nice looking. Well done!” Others have commented that their shoes feel custom-made just after a few wears.
The solidly constructed uppers, fashioned out of full-grain leather or water-repellent suede, keep their shape over a long time and will start to feel like a second skin. The vachetta leather linings add a level of protection, temperature regulation and odor control while encasing your feet in a silky smooth interior. A steel shank is also embedded in the midsoles of our shoes and boots for extra support and balance. And, the leather soles will conform to the shape of your feet over time and start to feel like a personalized footbed.
6. They’re designed to outlast trends
Trends come and trends go. Do you really want to end up with a closet full of shoes that are out of style, and out of touch? Probably not. Beckett Simonon creates shoes to “last for years, not seasons.” Rooted in a classic aesthetic with a contemporary flair, each style has been designed to stand the test of time. Instead of pushing out fads, we build upon our existing collection to bring you new and exciting variations of enduring favorites such as Cap-toe Oxfords, Tassel Loafers, Jodhpur Boots, Monkstraps and German Army Trainers. This way you’ll always be in step and never have to worry about what the latest “look” is.
7. They get a lot of attention
Customers love the compliments they get when wearing their Beckett Simonon shoes. “On my 6th pair! Can’t get enough!” wrote pixle_lava_ny_manga on Instagram, “Shoes demand attention and people do stop and notice. Every time I wear my Wholecuts or Nolan’s or my Costa Adelaides I get nothing but compliments. Beckett Simonon is all I wear now. Nothing but good things to say about you guys!”
This level of attention could be caused by the stunning leather, the rich pigments, the distinctive silhouettes or expertly applied details. Whatever the reason, if you like to be noticed and appreciated when wearing nice things, a pair of Beckett Simonon shoes will do the trick.
8. The company has amazing customer service
How many times have you contacted a company only to be left frustrated by poor customer service? Probably a lot. Beckett Simonon has earned a reputation over the years as having some of the best service our customers have ever experienced.
Michael L. wrote, “Besides the product, the customer service was exceptional! I was hesitant to give Beckett Simonon a try, but already have a few new tabs open of purchases I would like to make next. They were quick to respond to my questions and made my first-time experience simply delightful.”
Our Customer Happiness agents work extremely hard to make sure each interaction they have is helpful, effective and meaningful. And, we are constantly striving to improve so that you will have the best experience with us.
9. They’re worth much more
Looking your best shouldn’t have to cost a fortune. That’s why we do everything possible to keep expenses down and pass the savings on to you. Shoes as well made as Beckett Simonon shoes usually retail at least three times as much as what we charge. We follow a Made-to-Order (MTO) business model and sell directly to you online. There are no middlemen, no physical locations and no inventory. All of these savings are passed on to you.
“I cannot say enough great things about your company and products,” commented Dave B., “The quality and workmanship is impeccable. They are not only the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn but they look better than luxury brands that cost four times the price. I understand your business model - and while these do take a while to produce, they are 100% worth the wait. Your communications throughout the assembly process is appreciated and insightful. Just couldn’t be happier with my purchase.”
10. They have over 6,000 five-star reviews
The reviews quoted above are only a sample of the 6,000 plus five-star reviews Beckett Simonon shoes have received over the years. Among some of the things customers have commented on include how happy they are with the fit and feel, the impeccable quality, the elegance, the construction, the top-of-the-line materials and craftsmanship and the fine finish of their shoes.
Meredith J. sums up all these sentiments nicely with this amazing review, “I read about Beckett.... I heard about Beckett. Then I decided to try for myself.... no way... I not only love them but I’ve damn near purchased every type of shoe they make. Once they all arrive I will take a picture as I want to be the new fan club President. Great shoes, great price, incredible customer service.... nothing else left to say other than, if you are thinking about purchasing a pair, stop thinking about it and just do it. Trust the process as your money will be well spent.”

I just received the 2 pairs of Dean Oxfords I ordered earlier this year – and I have to say – these are by far the nicest shoes I’ve ever owned. High quality craftsmanship, excellent materials, and obviously a lot of care went into making these shoes. When I put them on, they fit like a glove. And, there was not the usual “foot dissension” that occurs with new shoes – these fit perfectly, and no blisters or pain or discomfort. I couldn’t be happier, and I plan to expand my collection of footwear from Beckett Simonon. Thank you!
