Corthay trunk show, May 19 and 20

Corthay is arguably one of France’s most dynamic shoemakers. His shoes are elegant and ultra sophisticated, like small works of art. He began his shoemaking career at Les Compagnons du Tour de France, a venerable crafts guild. He later worked for John Lobb Paris before taking over as atelier head at Berluti. In 1990 he struck out on his own and has not looked back.

In 2010 he was awarded the honor of “Master of Art” by the government of France. The Master of Art designation of France, while not widely known in the States, is not bestowed lightly. In short, it means that the individual or firm is a cultural icon.

Joining us from the workshop, one of Corthay’s patina artists will be here to apply custom patinas. Bring a pair of your Corthays for a makeover, or just drop by to see the process in person.

Corthay Vendome

The Vendome is Pierre Corthay’s take on the classic wingtip shoe. Everything about this shoe makes it unique, from its sleek, contemporary last, to its subtle wingtip pattern, to its richly dynamic color. It pairs well with anything from jeans to suits.

Corthay Arca Stream

The Arca Stream is a twist on Corthay’s classic model. With two eyelets and a handsewn toe, it’s a modern, sleek shoe that is quintessentially Corthay. Made in Old Black Calfskin, they look great in a variety of settings.

Corthay Fantomas, Flint Suede

What can be said about the Fantomas? Take a ghillie, make it in patinated flint suede, add single leather soles, work in some purple laces, and you have this very pair by the master himself, Pierre Corthay. An everyday shoe? Hardly. But that won’t get in your way.
