LOU.EARL is a women’s modern luxury footwear brand that was founded in 2014 by Alaskan-born and raised shoe designer and developer, Laura Unruh who also has a full background in apparel and photography.  LOU.EARL is a small, family-run business still in the start-up stages of growth and we maintain all efforts to be competitive with businesses of all-sizes within our industry.

The unique vision within LOU.EARL not only consists of an enriching and creative work/life experience but with consistent growth of the brand, we strive to build a platform that adheres to limitless boundaries and rules. Consciousness and creative building with a "do-right" mindset is the core philosophy of the brand.

LOU.EARL shoes encompass creativity, loyalty, integrity and ageless modern fashion. We embrace independence and originality in our product and in all of humanity. 

As of Spring 2019, our high-quality luxury footwear is now manufactured at a family-owned and operated factory in Northern Italy consisting of more than 30 shoemaking artisans. The footwear styles and components are 100% made in Italy of the highest materials and standards with lots of love. Our footwear is made of our worlds natural components such as rubber, leather and metals. We use the least amount of plastic whenever possible to maintain sustainable footwear.

We have recently eliminated wholesale relations in order to maintain an affordable price point for our luxury women's footwear.  Now we are able to offer you directly our luxury footwear at prices of $250- $400 which would otherwise cost upwards of $650. We want you to enjoy our stylish efforts and become a part of our family too. 

We do our best to offer personalized service to every one of our customers and thank you all for your support throughout the years!
