Why Footwear?

People who work in the service industry are experts in their craft. A craftsman is only as good as his or her tools. Can a chef properly fillet a piece of salmon without a sharpened knife? How does a bartender crush the mint for a mojito without a muddler? Could a sommelier present the perfectly paired glass of wine without a wine key? Each of these tools is an extension of the professional, which allows them to hone their unique skills and talents.

There is one foundational tool missing for each and every professional. We believe that proper footwear is essential to a fulfilling and healthy career.  

Paul Hardt footwear is designed to look great, no matter what side of the bar you’re on. So, if you're cranking out a barrage of cocktails or enjoying a night out on the town, the look and comfort of your shoes will be the last thing on your mind.

Our Pattern For Success

Unlock Potential

The key represents our commitment to the Paul Hardt motto: Never Settle. We believe that remaining vigilant and striving for excellence in every aspect of work and life will unlock doors. 

Stay Sharp

For too long work shoes have been focused on work functionality. Some brands have their focus on comfort. We focus on delivering products with style while utilizing high-performance technology to ensure comfort and utility behind the scenes. 


The heart is in the essence of our name. It stands for doing the right thing even when no one is looking. We try to maintain an attitude of gratitude as we have much to be thankful for.

Crafted Quality

Our goal is to put as much thought, creativity, and effort into our products as our amazing customers do. The bar and restaurant industry is playing at a higher level than ever before, we will deliver the tools to support that level of craftsmanship.

Hidden Secrets

Paul Hardt footwear does not say “work shoe” and it does not say “comfort shoe”. At first glance our classic styling and visible quality do not give way to our hidden gems inside. Built like a modern athletic shoe; everything under the hood screams performance while everything visible declares style.
