When it comes to sharp styles, Corthay’s the master, and the Wilfrid is one of the sharpest of the bunch. Made in Corthay’s dark brown calfskin with a denim accent at the lacing quarters, these are sure to look good in any combination.

Let me start by way of an apology to our client Mr. R. who ordered this fine pair of Pierre Corthay Wilfrid’s. When I opened the box and took a first look I may have drooled a little on them. I couldn’t help it this pair just blew me away.
My first thought was dark chocolate covered caramels, sweet; rich with a hint of bitterness it’s no wonder my mouth watered. They’re such a great color I just can’t take my eyes off them. Enjoy these well Mr. R. they’re destined to be a Corthay classic.

*MTO footwear is not part of our stock lines, they are Made To Order.
A shoe becomes it’s own simply by changing colors or leathers. To demonstrate this point here is the Corthay Wilfrid in several versions, which we have ordered for clients. The Wilfrid is among the more popular Corthay styles.
