George Esquivel

Hometown Specialty Est.

Handcraftsmanship, quality and tradition are at the heart of Esquivel, a brand that combines a modern aesthetic with a timeless sensibility, all with a Southern California, casual sophistication. Producing a limited quantity of hand-made shoes for select retailers and personal clients throughout the world, Esquivel is able to tell a story with each pair through signature hand finishes and a refined finesse developed over two decades of practice. Leathers are sourced from the finest tanneries in the world, and every line cut and stitch sewn by hand to create an unmistakable footprint.

George Esquivel, California-based designer and craftsman, operates his namesake brand from an atelier in Orange County, California. Trained in shoemaking, George designs with a hands-on approach, working closely with his team of craftsmen.


The men’s collection is the perfect blend of unique and utilitarian that is intended to accompany their owner on many adventures, made one at a time by artisans dedicated to perfection. Inspired by the sights and sounds of my travels to Paris, Italy, and Mexico City, it is meant to evoke a sense of familiarity and warmth; the leather finishes and fabrics intertwined throughout the collection each tell a unique story that will be carried for years to come. We hope you enjoy wearing them as much as we enjoyed crafting them for you.
