MEET YOUR MAKERS
Below are stories of some of Milwaukee’s hard-working makers. And no, they don’t go by “influencers”.
Our boots aren’t made for runways, models wearing circulation-cutting shirts, or for people who wince when they hear the words “wood sliver”. That’s why you won’t find any models on our website. Just Wisconsin-based creatives, doers, movers and makers, all from Milwaukee, all wearing Milwaukee Boots.
Hand. Made. Pasta. It’s Adam Pawlak’s MO. Since 2018, Pawlak has been slinging fresh and flavorful Italian inspired by his Sicilian heritage, right here in Milwaukee, WI. When he isn’t cracking eggs and kneading dough at his Milwaukee restaurant Egg & Flour, he’s working alongside local charities and providing his catering services for those in need. Something we love about Adam? His commitment to keeping his product handcrafted. It’s something we have in common.
Meet Jordan. He’s a local artist, musician, woodworker, and poster-man for our heritage cap-toe boot, the Pfister. Just like the Pfisters, Jordan is old-school cool. Modern tools? Forget it. Long days in his Walker’s Point workshop lead to some of Milwaukee’s finest handcrafted furniture, made with hand tools and a devotion to the craft.
When he isn’t out spreading positivity as a motivational speaker, he’s usually in the studio, choreographing and teaching children. For Chris, the main focus is instilling even more positivity back into Milwaukee. While he makes moves in the studio, we think he also makes Milwaukee a better, brighter, and bolder city.
They were large boots to fill, but it goes without saying–Danny does our Farwell boots serious justice. When he isn’t putting out fires or rescuing stranded kittens from trees, he’s working with Milwaukee-based organization Ignite The Spirit to help support sick, injured or fallen firefighters and their families in times of need.
