This desire to do well manifests itself in the concept and name behind De Santos literally translated from Spanish as ‘Of Saints.’ Each piece bears the name of a historical saint that is befitting the essence of the product along with their unique brand of doing good. From boots that raise awareness on criminal justice reform to toiletry bags that aid in providing hygiene essentials to disaster stricken areas around the world.
The notion of good extends beyond acts of kindness and into the product construction itself. Sourcing materials from Italy, England and Germany, De Santos produces a sleek, comfortable and practical anti-bacterial product that is fabricated in a 50-step process per shoe, per pair.
De Santos believes that premium quality and doing service towards others isn’t mutually exclusive. It is the same passion for attention to detail and expert craftsmanship that shapes successful companies, individuals, and communities.This is the new standard of premium.
