Corthay shoes are many things, elegant, streamline, and sophisticated are a few adjectives that come to mind. But one thing they are not and that is for the faint of heart.
Case in point is this pair of Arca in Framboise patent leather with silk ribbons and pom-poms. These are the kind of shoes that make you stop in your tracks and say “holy crap”. They’re just begging to be spooned over a dish of vanilla ice cream.
And the Bella in dark Lie de Vin with granny apple piping is a deep rich wine that settles over you like a tonic. It’s all about simple design, meticulous execution and the use of color and materials that set Corthay in a class of his own.

Customization does not have to be complicated. Below are three classic Edward Green styles, made to order for our clients. Each shoe is a relatively simple endeavor made from a single leather.
That being said, each is an example of what a small change can do. By substituting grey suede or a pebble grain for a more standard leather, each shoe has become one of a kind.
