We started with a simple premise. Style starts with a curated footwear collection.
Ankari Floruss was started by Moti Ankari and Marcel Floruss, two of today’s most influential menswear bloggers. We believe stylish footwear essentials are foundational to building a wardrobe that gives you the ability to flex and express your personal style. Our Seven Days collection was created to provide staples that make you feel confident every day of the week, every day of the year.

Moti & Marcel
Moti Ankari and Marcel Floruss are the heart and soul behind the Ankari Floruss brand. Two of the biggest influencers in the men's fashion community, Moti and Marcel share a passion for quality footwear and sharing style with others.
Moti is one of the few menswear influencers that has both industry and street credit to his name. A New York Native, he was one of the original fashion influencers when he started his blog, The Metro Man, in 2011. He has worked for GQ and was the Fashion Editor for Bloomberg Pursuits, where he styled Rami Malek, Julian Edelman, Sophia Bush and more. Through his own platform, he’s worked with some of the most well-known and prestigious brands in the world such as Dior, H&M, American Express, and Audemars Piguet and has been featured in multiple reputable media outlets including Forbes, Esquire, Bloomberg, New York Times and more. To date, Moti has garnered over 300K menswear enthusiast followers combined on his social media platforms.@motiankari
Born and raised in Germany, Marcel decided to move to New York to pursue a career in the fashion industry. Half-way through his bachelor’s degree at FIT, he launched his Blog ‘One Dapper Street’ in 2013 which quickly turned him into one of the most well-known men’s fashion influencers in the US. Since then, he’s amassed more than 900k style-advice-seeking followers on Instagram and YouTube. Having worked with brands ranging from H&M and Walmart to Louis Vuitton and Piaget, his knowledge granted him the honor of being on Forbes’ European 30 under 30 list, as well as being featured in GQ, The New York Times and The Huffington Post, who saw his potential early, and in 2014 called him “One Of The Best Dressed Men on Instagram.”@marcelfloruss
