Paola: Neither my brother nor I thought we would end up in the family business, but as I’ve grown up, I have discovered that there’s nothing quite like it. Life is unpredictable, and we decided to work in this company together.
My father has guided us and taught us through the years. My mother is our guru when it comes to finances. They advised us on the best artisans to bring in to create the sneakers.
Jeisson: I find the textures of leather fascinating. I love to learn about design. However, I am more involved in administrative things, especially in preparing the order forms and logistics.
You can’t learn unless you are immersed. Shoemaking is a beautiful trade, and I am learning every day.
Paola: Jeisson and I plan and organize and keep the artisans going, but in this ensemble, it is the fantastic talent of each artisan that creates the music or, in our case, the sneakers!
