Atelier Pierre Corthay

The workshop of master shoemaker Pierre Corthay is a small and intimate salon. Here craftsman work quietly and intensely turning bits of leather into a works of art. Every man in his space, every shoe in its place, every movement choreographed not a material wasted.

To truly appreciate what makes a shoe remarkable you need to understand what goes into its creation.To beget something of beauty today by means of your hands and simple tools is rare; but to do it at such a high level is extraordinary. It was an honor and a pleasure to watch these men work, like watching a graceful dance full of passion and skill, the only thing missing was the music.

Suede Report

Now hear this, early indicators point to a big season for suede. We’re feeling it and so are many of our clients. Recent MTO’s have been particularly suede heavy. It’s time to get over the whole “I’ll ruin those the first time I wear them” thing. Suede is a lot more durable than you think and gets better looking with wear.

It’s never too early to plan ahead, if you’ve been considering ordering a pair for fall now is the time to place your order.
