Family-run shoemaker Melvin & Hamilton was founded in 1988 in Heidelberg by Rajab Choukair and is overseen today by his sons, Karim and Olivier, who inherited their father’s passion for footwear and leather. The brothers design the collections based on traditional shoemaking methods, using only the highest-quality leathers, which are hand-coloured to achieve a unique effect each time.
A range of colours and finishes, combined with distinctive details such as decorative stitching, laser-printed patterns and hand-milled soles, ensure that each and every pair of Melvin & Hamilton shoes is imbued with character. These lace-up men’s derby shoes are a perfect example, with the contrasting coloured panels striking a beautiful balance between tradition and modernity.
