Joshua Sanders is a world, it's not just about products. We travel the world seeking for new ideas and new moods, looking forward to express them through our shoes.

The JS woman is a mix of an IT girl and a woman who wants to feel comfortable yet up to date. She want to show the world that she likes travelling and discovering new mood.
Where does the idea/concept come from? What does it evoke?
The concept is STREET COUTURE. We want to mix the classic street sneakers with a touch of couture. JS is also a COSMOPOLITAN brand. Our shoes are the result of different influences coming from all over the world.
Where does your inspiration come from?
Our inspiration comes from pretty much everything: sitting in a cafè in NYC, watching the people walking along, travelling to Miami and getting some fresh air from the beach... but also having the pleasure to see the art deco buildings. Being in Hong-Kong and having a dinner watching the building’s neon lights, going to London and discovering new stuff in a vintage market … Art, Food, Music, Travels: those are the most important inspirations for us.
How do you see Joshua Sanders' evolution throughout the years?
Every season for us in an evolution. We are running very fast and we are growing together with our customers. We want to improve the collections adding new pieces such as Ready-To-Wear . We don’t want to create a total look but just to show to the world what we like and how is our team : cool hunting is the key word for our curiosity.
