About Fortress of Inca:
In 2004, Texas native Evan Streusand discovered his first pair of Peruvian boots while backpacking through South America. At first hesitant of the idea of wearing a colorful, native looking boot with lambskin lining, he decided to blend in with the locals and add some flair to his adventure. Streusand loved his new look and realized that the mix of Incan textiles and the modern boot silhouette made for a very stylish product. This discovery lead him and his partners to create one of the most unique, up-and-coming shoe brands on the market today.

Handmade in Peru, Fortress of Inca channels a free-spirited and vibrant lifestyle, while bringing the finest quality leather and woven Peruvian textiles (locally known as ‘mantas’) to each pair of shoes. Each collection features traditional, eye-catching patterns and designs that boast originality, bold colors, and intricate detailing. The line brings a unique, high-end look to the contemporary market, while staying true to its Peruvian roots
