Who is Marc Brunell ?
Marc Brunell is a UK brand inspired by Sir Marc Isambard Brunel FRS FRSE 25 April 1769 – 12 December 1849.
Marc Isambard Brunel was a civil engineer by trade and an adventurous man who came to the idea at trying his luck as a shoemaker. The thought came to him because he saw the need for good quality shoes as some of the so-called best wouldn’t last very long. His desire and craftmanship led him to understanding shoe making and producing top quality shoes. He mastered his craft and soon developed first machinery of its kind mass batching soldier’s boots.
But before this could reach full production demand ceased due to the end of the Napoleonic Wars. Brunel subsequently was bankrupted and so had to serve time in the King's Bench Prison in Southwark.
