Corthay trunk show, today and tomorrow

Corthay trunk show

Today and tomorrow we are hosting a trunk show with renowned French shoemaker Corthay. We’ll have a number of samples on hand, as well as fitting shoes so you can determine your size. Corthay’s made-to-order surcharge is waived for the duration of the show.

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.

Saint Crispin’s Trunk Show, April 25 and 26

You are cordially invited to join us for a trunk show with Saint Crispin’s on April 25 and 26 from 11:00 am to 7:00 pm. Mr. Phillip Car, Managing Director of Saint Crispin’s, will be here to present the collection.

Founded in 1992, Saint Crispin’s is recognized as a leader in design and craftsmanship of fine European footwear. As such, they work only with very fine selected partners around the world.

Headquartered in Austria and made in Romania, all Saint Crispin’s shoes are handcrafted by a small team of artisans, craftsmen and women. Their shoes are quite possibly as close to a bespoke fit as you will find in a ready to wear shoe. And while that may sound like a big statement, in our opinion these shoes are top flight all the way.

The attention to detail is evident in all aspects of the shoes, not least of which is the fit. Saint Crispin’s designs their shoes with human engineering in mind. The heels are canted, which is the outside of the heel is slightly lower than the inside, as is the top line under the ankles, thus cradling the natural resting position of your foot.

The same attention to design goes into the styling of the shoes as well. Saint Crispin’s shoes are some of the most unique shoes produced, full of individualism and character.

The company’s business model is based on custom shoe orders, as such you will be offered a wide variety of models, leathers and fits including individualized lasts. Your shoes will be delivered to you in approximately 8-10 weeks.

We encourage you to take advantage of this special opportunity to meet Phillip Car and check out his extraordinary collection of shoes.
