Our Heritage


Handcrafted shoes, made to last.

Koch & Co. is a footwear start up based in Berlin. Launched in 2015 by Vishesh Kochher. Our goal is to offer quality dress shoes that are timeless in their design, and durable in their construction.

Our debut collection offers four classic shoe designs that we believe are a key investment for every man's wardrobe. The Monk Strap, Oxford Brogue, Captoe and Loafer. 

We continue to be inspired by the notion of 'slow fashion'. By opting for quality materials and timeless designs we hope to slow the rate of fashion consumption, while providing men with beautiful shoes that are made to last.


“Our goal is to deliver top quality goodyear welted leather shoes while eliminating the problem of choice. The tightly curated collection consists of classic designs that you can still wear year after year.”
— Vishesh Kochher, Co-Founder & CEO

Family Heritage

The Kochher family has been in the leather shoe industry in India for four generations. 

In the newly independent India of the early 1950s, Vishesh's great-grandfather was pivotal in opening up the Indian shoe industry to the rest of the world.

This passion and motivation to revolutionise the footwear industry was passed down the generations and now Koch & Co. hopes to bring these 60 years of craftsmanship and heritage to a wider audience and provide people with quality shoes that will last a lifetime.
