We are a Australian footwear brand. Highly regarded for establishing itself as one of the first footwear brands in Australia, the brand has evolved organically amongst a contemporary global audience and is reputable for “Modernist off duty footwear”.
Drawing inspiration from the effortless nature of European style, JAMES | SMITH explores architectural silhouettes with a minimalist foundation. Exploring the balance of classic and contemporary to elevate your everyday look.
The duo behind the brand - Breeana and Matt, draw on a wealth of industry experience, teamed with a progressive mindset towards lifestyle and travel. This has reflected strongly in the scope and diversity of the JAMES | SMITH product and customer, where comfort and culture reigns supreme.
Using only premium quality leathers and materials and the finest craftsmanship, your JAMES | SMITH shoes will stand the test of time.
Integral to the brand is the concept of longevity, styles that can be worn and loved through the seasons and the years.
We are a small, dynamic team (it feels more like a family really) … there’s a lot of love, passion and commitment that goes into driving small business and these are the faces behind the brand.
