Together we design and produce each pair of sandals in our Brooklyn studio: cutting, sewing, embossing, lasting and finishing the sandals together. With over 25 years of experience in footwear and garment industries combined, we pair traditional techniques with our knowledge of production methods to bring you J+S. From our hands to your feet, we hope you love these as much as we love making them.
Our sandals are made from the best materials we can find. The quality of the materials we choose to put into our sandals and the ability to focus on the details are what inspires us. We use thick layers of vegetable tanned leather for the perfect sole; the bottom layer hardened for a more durable wear. The uppers are thoughtfully designed for clean lines, perfect fit and comfort. Our goal is to provide you with better sandals so you can feel good and look great.
Sheena was raised near the bay area in California, excelled in arts in high school and traveled to NYC to study fashion. When she isn't hard at work, she likes to learn about local/seasonal cuisine, undiscovered beaches, and searches for the perfect sunset.
John traveled all over as a yoot, discovered art later in life and also went to NYC to study design. When he isn't hard at work, he likes running, fine arts, and travelling with Sheena.
