Andiamo International LTD
James started Andiamo International LTD in 2013. They detail the beginnings of their company in their Starter Story interview: 
Q: How did you get started on Andiamo International LTD?
Our dad started the business over 30 years ago, supplying the UK high street multiples with men’s own label fashion footwear. Customers such as TOPMAN, RIVER ISLAND, KURT GEIGER, ASOS, OFFICE, SOLE TRADER, etc.
Once we had decided to hire extra staff and knowingly make a loss for a few years, everything started to go in the right direction. We could all focus on our strengths and let the expert in marketing handle marketing, the expert in design handle design, etc.
Over the years my brother and I both joined the company and almost instantly we all knew as a family that we wanted to start our own brand. For years we had been developing collections for other labels and it was time for us to start our own journey. We wanted to start something truly special that we could be proud of and have as our own – and in 2013 our dream became a reality when we launched WALK London.
For us we wanted WALK London to be a go-to source for men who want to look fashionable and feel great. We never wanted to be known for just being a loafer brand, or a boot brand, etc – we aim to produce fashionable collections every season so men can always look their best, whatever the trend. We were also always keen to ensure this was an accessible brand. A lot of the brands we grew up loving have set the retail so high it’s unattainable for a lot of men. We want to create high-quality, fashionable products at affordable prices.
