His Shoes to Vy For

If you can tell a man by his shoes (as my father always said) then this man is tall, dark and handsome!
Corthay, a French company created by Pierre Corthay, has just opened a shop making elegant shoes. Following his apprenticeship, Pierre Corthay spent two years working at John Lobb, then six years as senior craftsman at Berluti before starting his own company in 1990.

He was joined by his younger brother Christophe and the Corthay family business now sells their ultra chic handmade-to-measure and ready-to-wear shoes across the world including shops in France, New York and Japan. There are rumours that some customers, so enamoured by Corthay's cobbling, order up to 150 pairs at a time.
