Launched by friends Enrique Corbi, a veteran of Lacoste, and Arnaud Zannier in 2001, n.d.c. began with a unique premise: render a favorite pair of brogues slightly less perfect-looking. That the duo did by throwing them in a washing machine, resulting in a shoe that looked slightly beat-up, well-worn, and undeniably cool. Since then, n.d.c. footwear has retained that aesthetic, toeing a proverbial line between singular, streamlined design and impeccable hand-craftsmanship. Comprised of everything from ruggedly cool biker, zip and slip-on boots to classic lace-up styles, all n.d.c. shoes are made by artisans from the finest Italian, English and American leathers.
