Bagua Shoes was born in Paris’s Montmartre neighbourhood in the spring of 2009. Founded by childhood friends Philippe Hadey, Jean-Baptiste Dewavrin and JayOne, Bagua is inspired equally by ancient Chinese philosophy and contemporary influences. After launching with JayOne, a modern, rubber-soled update of age-old kung fu slippers, Bagua has expanded to offer low-cut lace-ups as well as chukka boots in a broad range of materials. As Bagua evolves, it remains committed to its core principles of simplicity, comfort and style, creating kicks that connect to the concept, Home, Street, Home.
Modern vs Ancient – Simplicity vs Complexity – Day vs Night – Inside vs Outside – Ying vs Yang
