Twenty Two Shoes Launch

Chris and Alexandra Silverman launched twenty two shoes to combine drop-dead style and old-world craftsmanship. twenty two shoes are designed by the husband and wife team in their California studio, and then handcrafted by a small family-run business in the Le Marche region of Italy. With a combined total of 20 years of design experience between them, the Silvermans have successfully created a line that combines the luxury of top-quality hides, modern details, and unparalleled fit and comfort. Fall 2006 marks the unveiling of the men’s line, which shares the same name as their popular Oakland, California shoe shop founded in 2000. Go to for more information.
