In 1999, Icon introduced the world to art-printed leather shoes with the release of its Andy Warhol Campbell Soup Sneaker. Since then, Icon has proved a leader in designing and manufacturing luxurious, high-quality, high-fashion shoes, handbags, and accessories. It is our goal to create leather goods that make our customers feel fashionable and comfortable and bring art to the world in an innovative way.

With a keen eye to trending colors and textures, our talented designers and graphic artists skillfully select and reproduce classic and contemporary artwork in Icon’s leather products. Exacting in attention to detail, these artisans ensure that the images are sized and positioned to complement each product type while maintaining the interpretation and integrity of the artwork. Icon’s patented printing process then transfers these exclusive, licensed artworks to high-quality leather.

  • Icon brings the Arts to fashion, available to everyone. We feature famous masterpieces by historic artists such as Picasso, Klimt, Van Gogh and Monet, owned by and exhibited in the world’s most prestigious museums and galleries. Icon also supports living artists, introducing their art in our collections via licensing and royalty agreements.
  • All Icon-printed and trim leathers are made with the finest cowhide, pigskin or lambskin available. The only exception to date has been a canvas shoe (The Kylie), launched in 2015.
  • Made in the USA & Canada, our lines are produced in limited quantities from 50-200 pieces per style. Icon’s Art Collections offer a variety of product styles - shoes, handbags, and small leather goods carefully designed and packaged to tell a story in fashion, an offering of expressive collectibles.
  • Each season presents an opportunity; new art collections are introduced for spring/summer and fall/winter, and like the seasons we do not utilize the same art, in the same way, again. Based on demand and from time-to-time, Icon will bring back ‘limited quantities’ as part of our Timeless Collections. At Icon we believe in timeless, keepsake pieces to be enjoyed for years to come. We offer art to be wearable and part of your everyday wardrobe.

WHAT MAKES OUR PRODUCTS SO SPECIAL?

At Icon, we are “Wearable Art”

Where we are today…

2018 brought many changes to Icon. We became Canadian! A group of socially conscious people decided to purchase the business assets and move it to Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, on the Canadian prairies.

In its new home e-commerce has continued, and we opened our flagship store, Icon Shoes & Accessories, at 808 Broadway Avenue in Saskatoon. A separate production facility is located also in Saskatoon.

Here at Icon, we believe that everyone deserves to have a chance at a full, productive life as a contributing member of society. We are focused on helping people who are willing and offer training and employment in a safe and non-judgmental environment.

Icon’s platform for social support operates to support the development of recovery communities. In April of 2021 Icon reached an important milestone - signing a Memorandum of Understanding with the Pelly Agency Anishinabek Elders of the Kamsack, Saskatchewan area to provide support for a Pimatsowin Gabeshiwin (Life Camp) therapeutic on-the-land-camp. Led and directed by the Elders, this Life Camp promotes the Saulteaux culture, language, traditions and ceremonies to the community, while simultaneously providing traditionally based recovery.

Our Mission

“…to provide a safe and non-judgmental environment for willing individuals to realize personal growth and a sense of value and connection in themselves and the global family…

…To provide the spirit and financial energy for the development of Pimatsowin Gabeshiwin”.
