It’s a typical New York City day. You’re taking your daily walk around the park, or to work, and, unbeknownst to you, there is a storm brewing. Suddenly, dark clouds begin their treacherous journey into Manhattan… Continue reading Ombrelli
The warmer weather in NYC means shorts, sun glasses, and ice cream. A lot of ice cream. There are many great shops here in NYC, and we happen to be close to quite a few of them. Allow us to take you on a tour of West Village (and surrounding) ice creamy bliss.
Ah, vacation season. The escape from cold weather to white sand and golden sunshine. The salty taste of ocean water. Time spent with family and friends. It’s the best. At least that’s what we think here at NW, and since our Spring/Summer 2017 Collection is centered around California, we thought we’d create a fun vacation guide for a delightful trip to the golden state, put together by our own native Californian on the NW team. Continue reading Goin’ to California- a Vacation Guide

This new West Village column is dedicated to things we love in our community, whether it’s a delicious restaurant, cozy concert venue, interesting shop, neighborhood secret spot, or tradition.

One of my favorite parts of creating new shoes and boots is selecting the leathers. We make a bunch of our boots here in America and I endeavor to use as much American materials as possible in the production—leathers, laces, … Continue reading American Bison
I’m so fortunate to have studied the traditional craft of shoemaking. I lived in Holland for ten years, and was introduced to a small school in a village outside of Utrecht. For those interested, it’s got a crazy long Dutch name and goes by its initials, SVGB. Continue reading Shoemaking
As an American shoemaker, I’m passionate about craft and American craft in particular. Several years ago, I had the opportunity to visit one of America’s only glasses factories—Randolph Engineering, just outside of Boston. Continue reading Randolph Engineering
