When you started planning out the Nils, how did you imagine the shoe being worn?
First off, with well-fitted pants, whether it be a suit, dress pants or just the right work or play chinos. Once I saw the first samples, I realized it was going to be just as much of a casual shoe with denim as the dress shoe I imagined.
Did you take any inspiration from anywhere?
