Not to be cheesy, but when it comes to this Montreal based shoe label, we may have found our sole mate. Designed in the historic St. Henri neighborhood, each collection is crafted with principles that are rooted in the classics but with an edgy, urban feel. Founder Davis Guay launched Cartel with the idea of staying true to what is timeless while embracing the unexpected: “I appreciate the classics. They won’t go out of style.” Born in Prince Edward Island, Davis launched Cartel in August of 2015. Abandoning the idea of fast fashion, every piece is made to last and is crafted entirely out of premium leather. The kicker? Every style is super luxurious with accessible prices, meaning you can stock up your shoe closet without your wallet taking a major hit. We're already hooked.
