We're commited to making a difference.

We are all responsible for each other and the environment 

As a footwear brand Beckett Simonon has the power and responsibility to enact change. Many clothing manufacturers churn out tons of garments every season without much (if any) regard for how excess production leads to an overwhelming amount of waste, mismanagement of resources and worker exploitation.

Most excess inventory ends up in landfills or is incinerated, which produces dangerous greenhouse gases. Additionally, a lot of mass production is done by workers, sometimes children, under inhumane and dangerous conditions all for the sake of cost-cutting. 

Quality products made to last years not seasons 

At Beckett Simonon we strive to create the best products possible out of materials that will last for an extremely long time. This way you will have items which you can wear and treasure over the years, not just seasons. And possibly hand them down to future generations.

Our artisans are afforded the time and safe conditions they need to apply their skill when handcrafting enduring, high-quality goods that stand the test of time. We follow a Made-To-Order (MTO) business model, which means that every item we produce is pre-ordered by a committed owner. This way we can reduce waste, manage resources, avoid overproduction and help you save money. Think of the time you wait as an investment that will pay dividends well into the future.


Ours is the quest for creating something that remains, for enjoying enduring experiences in our lives and thoughtfully designed objects in our wardrobes. It is also the pursuit of celebrating and preserving craft; while taking ownership of the impacts of what we put into the world.

We stand by our core beliefs


Companies should be a force for good.


Our operations should have a positive impact.


Every product made should already have an owner. 


Products should improve and age gracefully as you wear them. 


Long-lasting products are better for the environment.


Quality can't be rushed; time and patience lead to great things.


Personnel is more powerful if they are happy, rested and healthy.


The artisans who handcraft our products deserve all the credit.


Great value shouldn't come at the expense of human dignity.


Responsibly made products shouldn't be available to just a few.


Excellent service begins by treating others with respect. 

We do what we can within the limitations we have

Even as a small company, we know that Beckett Simonon has an obligation - and the ability - to make a positive impact. However, we are sometimes limited in our capacity to fully realize our goals. That said, we are constantly evolving and finding new ways to do better, and to become a responsible brand. Please hold us accountable when we fall-short.

We are well-aware that working with leather is a controversial practice. However, we choose to do so because bovine leather is naturally durable, wear-resistant and ages beautifully. It isn’t a disposable material that will end up in a landfill after only a few uses. Furthermore, the leather we use for our dress shoes and boots has been sourced from Gruppo Mastrotto, a Gold-rated tannery in Arzignano, Italy.

This is the highest rating awarded by the Leather Working Group (LWG) in recognition of a producer’s highly responsible, and environmentally sound, processing methods. Mastrotto has also been awarded with certifications in terms of quality (ISO9001:2015), Environmental Management System (ISO14001:2015), biological or renewable components (USDA Certified Biobased Product), and environmental and human health (Blue Angel).
