Markhor shoes are made in the beautiful city of Lahore. The city has exquisite culture and a long history of high-quality craftsmanship that reflects from its architecture and lifestyle. Our shoes are made with the combination of traditional craftsmanship and flawless shoemaking techniques. Each shoe goes through more than 100 steps. We take pride in prioritising quality over quantity, attention to detail and high-quality craftsmanship that goes into each product we make.
The journey from an idea to reality is a long one. The process starts with sketching, to finalising shoe last, and making dozens of prototypes. Our design team based in Lahore and San Francisco ensures the perfect balance of form and function. We emphasis on bringing the modern design that truly expresses the comfort and functionality. It’s the small details that matters, like the pattern on our sole, hidden eyelets, the thickness of leather, cushioned insole and a right high of heel etc.
A careful selection of materials and excellent craftsmanship help us to create great products. We source leather from local tanneries in small batches, thus keeping the complete control on quality of our leathers. Our craftsmen inspect every hide with their hands. They have developed this skill with years of experience of making thousands of products. Their hands can identify the smallest defects, uneven surface and disease marks. It's magnificent to see a human transferring his instinct and soul into making a beautiful art piece.
