Mellow Walk was established in 1993 when the company started to craft hand-sewn footwear for women. The company focused on making women’s shoes until 2000 when a semi-retired shoe agent, Brian Suckling, suggested that Mellow Walk should consider making safety shoes. The first line of safety shoes built on the knowledge of hand-sewn footwear became an instant hit.
From then, the company has grown and is now selling shoes not just in Canada, but in the United States and as far as in the Middle East. In 2022, Mellow Walk and its factory in Toronto were purchased by Oliberte Limited.
