After obtaining her degree in Industrial Design from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design (MIAD), Rebecca Heykes (pronounced "Hikes") learned shoemaking at Cordwainers in London. Her background in all things design informs her method and approach to pattern-making and footwear construction.

HEYKES footwear and accessories exemplify Rebecca's obsession with construction techniques through fresh interpretations of old world craftsmanship. Evidence of this is apparent in her products' attention to detail, strength and durability, resulting in a practical elegance.
