Founder and Creative Director
Marvin Krasnow – or Marvin K. as he has become known – has over 45 years of footwear industry experience and is regarded for developing the first weatherproof and stain resistant, fashion footwear. Armed with a degree in engineering, experience in his family’s shoe factory, and a lifetime of harsh Montreal winters, he overcame industry skepticism and was the first to fuse fashion and function in footwear. Working alongside Italian manufacturers, he realized his vision and launched the Aquatalia by Marvin K. brand in 1994. Since then he has established himself internationally as a leader in performance technology, quality and style.
