BEHIND THE SEAMS: The Last Conspiracy
“THE LAST CONSPIRACY set out to provide quality artisan footwear, items
withstanding any test of time, imbued by the sense of history.”
The Last Conspiracy is a handcrafted collection of fine men’s shoes. Truthfully
“shoes” seems to be an inadequate word to describe the technique and care that are
infused into each piece, we prefer, walking works of art. Each pair is handmade with
extreme attention to detail incorporating techniques from Portuguese and Nordic
practices and showcasing experimental processing to create a collection all their
own. Every piece has it’s own unique touch influenced by the artistry of the
shoemaker and the personality of the wearer. Their motto, “We are ambiguous
explorers of modern waders.”

“Brazen, reflective and composed, we stand tall after the apocalypse.” The Autumn
Winter 2014 Collection combines elements of Nordic utility and traditional
craftsmanship to encapsulate the deconstruction of the shoemaking process.
Luxurious and rare materials ranging from yak leather to wool inlays have been
handpicked and personally treated by the crafters to create not only a custom fit,
but an experience for the wearer.

AW14 Collection and check out http://thelastconspiracy.com/ for more unique pieces.
