About Kings Traders

I am Nilesh Karani, and this is the story of our brand King's Traders.

Our brand King's Traders was established in 1965 by my father, Hemchand Karani in Dubai. He pursued his passion for writing instruments and has been offering favourite brands like Mont Blanc, Parker, Sheaffer, Cross, Waterman, Lamy, Kaweco, Porsche Design and a few more in our stores for the past 52 years. We also provide services for personalisation, pen repair, refills, accessories and complimenting products (like various kinds of journals, notebooks etc.) in our store in Dubai.

In 2017, we have commenced our footing in high-quality leather footwear for men, who like fashion trends and appreciate good craftsmanship.

Resurrecting the Classics

Over the past few years, fast fashion has deprived the Millennials of classic style in men’s shoes with leather soles.

I aim to revive the classic designs in men's shoes, to bring back the style and suave with which men carried themselves in the past with the touch on modern and creative designs options.

We provide two categories of services in footwear. One of Ready-to-Wear collection and the other of personally customised shoes for our customers.
The Ready-to-Wear collection is by a favourite online brand, 3dmlifestyle.

Our customised shoes collection is for more affluent people who have a flair for fashion and want to distinguish themselves from the crowd with shoes that are designed by them to match their personality and attire.

The customisation starts with sizing (regular or extra-wide width options), the category of shoes (Oxford, Derbies, Loafers and Monkstraps), a varied choice of styles in the Plain toe, Cap toe, Quarter Brogue, Wingtip, in lace-ups. And decisions of Penny, Butterfly, Tassel, Belgian in loafers. The further customisation in leather and suede colour options or a combination of the two (leather and suede) is also an option.

We also offer hand-painted Patina in all the shoe categories for more adventurous clients. Creating a Patina shoe require very specialised skill and requires an expert Patina painter.

Should you have any ideas and needs for shoes, please feel free to contact me on nk@kingstraders.com. I am only glad to be of service.
