FOUNDER & CEO
Bo Van Langeveld
Bo spent much of his youth on the racing tracks as an international racing driver, surrounded by the sound of high-speed car engines.
After studying all over the world, it was in October 2015, that he came to a sudden, and ultimately life-defining, realization. He observed that copious men and women in corporate senior positions removed their shoes after office hours in preparation for the daily commute, as no formal shoes were comfortable enough to wear all-day. Bo marveled at the level of discomfort his co-workers were experiencing and the lack of any solutions, which led Bo to approach newly turned bespoke shoemaker, Allan Baudoin.
After a single afternoon at Allan’s atelier, both shared the same determination and vision to set out to create the first and most comfortable dress-shoes, to be championed for both style and comfort. Following a meticulous, scientific process of iterations and structural improvements, Allan and Bo eventually developed a product that questioned the status quo of dress shoes.
In 2021, Bo was included in Forbes 30 under 30 as a result of Baudoin & Lange taking the luxury shoe industry by storm since its arrival.
