The Baudoin & Lange Values
Baudoin & Lange is a vehicle for the development of a different kind of luxury, one that is defined by equal parts beauty, well-living and cultural heritage.
We seek to create a new sense of “well-living” for our clientele, through the comforting thoughtfulness we integrate into every product we design.
All of our products embody our core values of Elegance, Craftsmanship, and Comfort.
We embrace elegance in every detail of our products.
All of our footwear is handmade, with a bespoke-level of craftsmanship, by our master artisans, trained in the ways of Baudoin & Lange.
We achieve the most comfortable products within each category we market through proprietary construction methods, using only the very best materials and leathers sourced from the bespoke industry.
Simply Unmatched Comfort
The Baudoin & Lange definition of “Comfort” integrates the concepts of Comfortable and Comforting as one.
Comfortable feeling - one of being at ease, free of worry and secure.
Comforting beauty - soothing with a transformative power.
This unique approach is what defines us as a brand, we see comfort and beauty not as antithesis but as integral parts of each other. Every single B&L product will be the most comfortable pair you’ll ever wear. Guaranteed.
“Conservation of Balance” is integral to our functioning as a company, requiring commitments that are both technical and principled.
At the level of technique, it requires responsible sourcing, careful use of natural resources, and minimal waste. It means guiding the product through its whole life cycle from production to consistent and joyful use.
At the level of principles, conservation demands that we prioritise slower, more responsible work and products through extensive research.
By working with our local suppliers and tanneries together as a closely bound group, we commit to a deliberate and inherently thoughtful production process - approaching each project with the determination to create the next category-defining product in the utmost sustainable way.
The Baudoin & Lange Way
Baudoin & Lange designs and crafts luxury footwear of the highest
aesthetic and functional value, focusing exclusively on the creation of
category-defining products. Focus creates excellence.
What is our signature?
What you see here is not our logo, but the mark of a maker, a tactile sign of recognition of the values that bind us together.
A signature in brass. Unlike a logo to advertise to the world, it signals only to those who know. It designates a circle for all who appreciate finesse, and from the moment you cherish your first pair of Baudoin & Lange shoes, you become a member.
Why this signature?
It all goes back to our origins in bespoke shoemaking. Baudoin, half of the brand’s eponym, trained as a bespoke shoemaker, and its values run through the Baudoin & Lange DNA.
In bespoke, the design, perfect fit and quality of the shoe speak for themselves. Brass pins have been traditionally used to sign a sole — with the client’s initials — always underfoot, invisible to onlookers.
How is our signature created?
For the Sagan loafer’s signature, we turned to time-honoured bespoke techniques. With thousands of trials to reach perfection, and with a jeweller’s precision, three bespoke-made brass pins undergo over 30 exacting steps, ending with being set into narrow stacks of leather, on the heel of every Sagan loafer, which is then expertly buffed, coloured, and polished.
The resulting signature symbolises Baudoin & Lange’s deep and ongoing connection to tradition. They are our homage to excellence in all its forms and a sign of recognition for a true Baudoin & Lange creation.
Each dot represents one of the three jewels of Baudoin & Lange.
Even on the highly engineered rubber sole of the Stride, with its hand-drawn tread pattern and uniquely shock-absorbing honeycomb structure, we display the same markings, for those who know where to look.
Welcome to our circle.
