Mr. Hare is an English shoe label created by Mr Marc Hare, who was born and raised in South London. Marc runs the brand store in London’s Mayfair.
He decided to open his own brand after the realisation that there were not enough shoes in the world that he liked. Marc was at a roadside tapas bar in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Spain on July 23, 2008, when he looked at an older gentleman’s shoes sitting next to him, and decided that with a few tweaks they could be much better. It took 360 days from this day for his first creation to land on the shop floor at Dover Street Market, London.
The first Mr. Hare store opened in Mayfair in September 2012 following on from the success of his shoe sales in stores such as Harrods and Selfridges. Other stockists include Liberty, Colette, Dover Street Market, Matches Fashion & Mr PorterWith each shoe being handmade in Empoli, Tuscany, craft and luxury are paramount and the Mr Hare family includes a range of refined formal footwear and – a new addition – Mr. Hare's unique take on trainers
