British footwear designer Marc Hare's eponymous label was founded in 2008, despite the fact that Mr. Hare himself had no formal training in shoe-making or design. After years of consulting and the opening of his successful boutique, Something, Hare launched his "black shoe" concept, developing it into the formal and street footwear brand, Mr. Hare. Today, Mr. Hare focuses on quality and Italian craftsmanship to produce footwear that Hare has dubbed "the punctuation mark of any outfit".
