“La Bella” simply translated is the “Beauty” and so it is fitting that Pierre Corthay chose the name Bella for his most elegant demi boot. The lines of this boot are so clean and pure in a way that can only be translated by Corthay.
All Corthay shoes are made in Paris and should be considered works of art. Pierre himself was awarded the lifetime title of maître d’art, or master of art by the government of France. Each year, the award is given to honor native artisans for their expertise and talent in their fields.
While not widely recognized in the United States the award is highly prestigious in France.
To behold a pair of Corthay shoes is one thing but to own them is completely another. If you are fortunate enough to be among the latter you should consider yourself in rare company indeed.
