They focus on four core principles: quality, curation, experience, and fair prices. These two friends and entrepreneurs didn't start out in the fashion world, though. Ariel was in beverage distribution and Lane worked in the world of accounting. They were both frustrated with high-priced less than classy shoes, so they decided to do something about it. They researched the shoe industry, had a chance meeting with a shoe designer, quit their jobs to pursue their new venture, and now offer classic shoes for men at prices ranging between $95 and $210 - reaching a wider customer base and providing a needed product.   Simon Sinek - SinekPartners and Management Consulting Consultant [caption id="attachment_11237" align="alignright" width="200"] Simon Sinek[/caption] Simon Sinek is the owner of SinekPartners and the leader behind Start With Why.
