Bridlen shoes are becoming quite popular and quite quickly. They have made a name for themselves as one of India’s premier welted shoemakers. And rightfully so. They have done a good job and breaking into the international market and continue to excel in being at the forefront of the industry by partaking in many of our Super Trunk Show events, which I do believe in the end, will help solidify their popularity among the shoe masses as they showcase in two of the world’s largest cities.
This October 14th, at the inaugural New York Super Trunk, Bridlen showcases as our Platinum sponsor. With this position, they are bound to gain a lot of attention and further solidify Bridlen’s shoes as top contenders in the industry. I know that they will be well-received, just as they have been at the London Super Trunk Show. We thank them for their support in this new venture.
Bridlen started in 1986, as a brand that was mainly created to serve the Japanese market. This market consisted of a dense population of shoe connoisseurs. Japanese business culture strongly adheres to a classic look of suits and dress shoes. It has always been a ripe market for any shoe brand, but a well-protected one. Bridlen shoes stayed a relatively unheard-of brand in the Western world until one of the founding partners passed away in 2019. A new set of leaders then stepped up to the plate. These leaders had the vision to expand the brand on a worldwide level. And they have done just that.
Like many brands coming from India, there is true potential in Bridlen shoes. I have had the pleasure of unboxing two pairs and have seen firsthand the quality vs price ratio that they present. They are a force to be reckoned with, especially if they continue to excel and push themselves to be better, as I believe all good shoemakers should do. I am soon about to unbox a new pair of shoes they sent me having altered some of the details that I mentioned needed improving. I am excited to soon see those. Stay tuned!
