His shoes aren’t just beautiful.  The judges pressed him to answer the question, “What makes your pump different from the others we’ve seen?”  He explained that he not only uses the finest materials and craftsman, he has researched what makes a pump comfortable and incorporated this data into the making of his shoes.

I think we have all had that one pair of pumps that we could wear anywhere and when they finally bite the dust, it’s so painful to toss them.  I can’t wait to get Paul Andrew’s little lovelies on my feet.  Finally, a designer who cares whether my feet survive a night out!
