Triumph Over Tragedy
Established by Belgian Canadian shoe designer Andrew Durot, JENTS is the unlikely result of a colorful childhood growing up around the fashion industry and an unfortunate family tragedy. Andrew was expected to take over the family business, but those dreams were put on hold when his older brother was killed in a hit and run accident, sending his life on a different path. Several years later, Andrew found himself having to dress for a black tie event, and couldn’t find affordable, well-made dress loafers that could do justice to his tuxedo, which was the only remaining touchstone bequeathed to him by his brother. In pursuit of superlative shoe design available at an affordable price, Andrew quit his corporate job to create JENTS.
