Mr Corthay is also fortunate enough to be considered a living legend amongst his peers and shoe lovers alike.
He sweated and toiled for years progressing through the French ‘Compagnons de Devoirs’ apprenticeship system. Upon graduation, Pierre quickly established himself as a master of his trade and climbed through the ranks at Berluti, becoming their Master- Bottier.
He left to become an independent shoemaker. With ambitions to supply the ready-to-wear market, a small factory was established in the suburbs of Paris 8 years ago. From these humble surrounding’s, 15 artisans create about 15 pairs per day. We are proud to be Pierre’s only outlet in Switzerland.
