100% designed and handmade in California. Our small factory utilizes traditional techniques by hand resulting in no two pairs ever being exactly alike. We follow our heart as opposed to trends, and believe sustainable materials and ethical craftsmanship are even better when they are impeccable. Every pair of LOUISE-BRIDGE footwear is made to order, avoiding production waste, and promoting genuine slow fashion.
LOUISE-BRIDGE is made for those taking the unconventional route.
Melissah Louise Bridge is obsessed with designing unique, quality footwear, and believes that taking the conventional route is boring. Born and raised in California Melissah studied Architecture in Los Angeles at Otis College of Art and Design and transferred her skills to the Fashion Industry.
After taking on design direction for label licenses Dickies Moto, Andretti Eyewear, and Atleus Denim she decided to follow her life long goal in starting her own domestically made label in her favorite medium to date, footwear.
Her list of biggest influences are varied from Drummers Ginger Baker and John Bonham, to Architects Adolf Loos and Philip Johnson. If you haven’t heard from her she’s most likely down the street with her phone off watching all girl mariachi and tequila tasting with her husband.
