Founded in 2000 by Leonello Calvani and Patrick Ithier, Ash was created to provide unique footwear to fashion-forward men and women who set trends rather than follow them.
Ithier is responsible for the design side of the brand, and brought a strong background in French shoemaking. Starting at Charles Jourdan, he worked with Roland Jourdan before creating shoes for couturiers at Stephane Kélian. He soon started his own label, Mosquito, and was sourcing leather at a tannery in Santa Croce, Tuscany, when he met Calvani. They both noticed a gap in the market; original, creative footwear at accessible prices. Ash was then born.
Combining a background in French luxury design with Italian leathers and craftsmanship, the Ash collection is glamorous, rebellious and metropolitan, taking inspiration from cities all over the world.
Ash became known for its edgy footwear and accessories but was a brand that really came into its own during the wedge sneaker trend in 2012/13. Seen on the likes of Jessica Alba, Heidi Klum, Behati Prinsloo, and Alessandra Ambrosio, Ash wedge trainers quickly garnered cult status loved by celebrities and fashion bloggers across the globe.
With edgy, on-trend detailing, the Ash footwear collection spans sandals and trainers, to boots and high heels. Shop Ash UK at AllSole with free UK and EU delivery available. For full delivery and shipping information, please click here.
