Stig Percy

What we do and who we are


Stig Percy Andersson was a well-dressed photographer and also my grandfather. Stig Percy, the shoe brand, founded in 2016 in Gothenburg, Sweden, is a tribute to this inspirational man. He was well-dressed and lived an interesting life, with a taste for adventure – he traveled around Europe on his motorbike after the WW2 and took photographs and partied with famous Swedish artists in their studios. Stig also valued quality and duration. To Stig it was important to take care of everything he owned. These are also the core values of Stig Percy, the brand. We value quality, sustainability, and design and we aim to design versatile shoes that have a modern vision of how to make shoes last longer.

The was to create casual leather shoes with minimalistic, cool and contemporary Scandinavian design. Designed to look cool but endure the rainy weather we experience up north and contribute to a better environment. I believe that sustainability is the way forward and I have put a lot of thought around how Stig Percy can be at the forefront of sustainable shoes and shoemaking.

Materials


We are very proud that all of our shoes and all the materials from leather to shoe boxes are produced ethically in Portugal. Our insoles are extra cushioned and anti-bacterial for an extra comfortable shoe. The Portuguese leather we use is oak tanned and fully ecological and the cows are of Iberian origin. It is chrome and heavy metal free, friendly to both the human skin and the environment. The pre-treatment, tanning and finishing of the leather all contributes to a reduction of water consumption, chemical charges and the toxicity of the effluents that results in a beautiful leather with a lot of personality.

Shoe Care


At Stig Percy we think that modern sustainability starts with the shoe and is maintained by the wearer.

We cannot stress enough how important it is to take care of what you own, if you take good care of your shoes they will have a long and happy life!

We suggest that you:

  Use a shoehorn in order to prevent damage to the heals and use the bag that comes with the shoes to store them in.

• Polish them often! And before you do so, wipe of any surface dirt with a clean cloth.

• If your shoes get wet, fill them with paper or use shoe block and let them dry in room temperature.

• Don’t use the same shoes two days in a row – let them rest 24h before using them again.
