Shoes & Accessories - - The Month That Was -

Bro­ken Homme, a line of men’s artisan footwear and ac­ces­sories pro­duced in Cal­i­for­nia, has a new owner. Los An­ge­les­based Evo­lu­tions Footwear, the par­ent com­pany of Bed Stu, has ac­quired the brand from its founders.

Ac­cord­ing to Evo­lu­tions Footwear, the ac­qui­si­tion will al­low Bro­ken Homme’s founders Jim Leather­man and Josh John­son, to ex­pand the la­bel’s mar­ket for hand­made leather goods. The part­ners launched their busi­ness through a fundrais­ing cam­paign to pur­chase Paul’s Boots, a small Goodyear welt boot maker founded in 1970 es­tab­lished to pro­duce union-cer­ti­fied boots for the long­shore­man of Long Beach, Calif., and Los An­ge­les.

“Our fo­cus has al­ways been to re­dress mass pro­duc­tion,” said Roger Orozco, CEO of Evo­lu­tions Footwear. “Bro­ken Homme is a grow­ing leader in pro­vid­ing a frame­work for grow­ing trends, and crafts­man­ship that is par­al­leled to what we at Bed Stu live for. By join­ing forces with Bro­ken Homme, we have no doubt that we bring the fu­ture of hand­made prod­ucts to the next level.”

Leather­man and John­son will be join­ing the Evo­lu­tions Footwear team, fo­cus­ing on the de­sign, sales, and mar­ket­ing for its Bed Stu, Santa Rosa Brand, and Bro­ken Homme brands.

Bed Stu of­fers a line of footwear and ac­ces­sories for both men and women, fo­cus­ing on or­gan­i­cally tanned, chrome and chem­i­cal free leathers.
