1960 to 1999
In 1986, Gilles decides to create his very own range of shoes for men, answering to a rising demand. Harmony can’t be invented, it needs to be created. This the beginning of the John Foster brand. He finds inspiration in watching people walking down the street. The shoes he makes are hand crafted, Goodyear stitched, with leather work and impeccable finishes, for prices much lower than the competition. The first collection was a real succes. Simplicity is a matter of talent, and talent is something John Foster has.
