My first bespoke (Corthay) shoes!

post #1 of 54
Thread Starter 
I just got back from Paris where I collected my first pair of bespoke shoes. Some of you may remember my Corthay thread some month back of when I had my measure taken. The result you see below. My girlfriend and I spent a couple of hours at the shop with Pierre Corthay talking about his craft. He really is an extraordinary (though very French) guy. I will write a full account tomorrow and post some more pictures I am sure some would like to see. Some of you might be interested to hear that I will offer two pairs of Corthay shoes on eBay. One of them is a pair of graphite Arcas I bought too small (size 11 US) and hence never wore. The other one I managed to source in Paris, amazingly is an unworn pair of Corthay bespoke classic black box-calf Oxfords aproximatly size 9 US. If anyone is interested in either pair, let me know or check my auctions. For lovers of fine shoe rarities I also received a mint, bespoke pair of Henry Maxwell tassel loafers in dark brown and an identical bespoke pair in medium brown by John Lobb Paris.

The tiles on those appear to be almost perfectly sized and matched. Very nice, looking forward to your write-up.

Wow! A touch fashionable for my taste but wow all the same.

The shape is distinctively French. Enjoy them!

These are very nice. Are they crocodile?

nice ones.

btw, does that make them 'bespoke' if you have only two lasts to choose from?

but how do they run a bit small? is the 11 US fit like a 10 you are saying?

I don't know what that means but those are very very extraordinary shoes. I love the Corthay shape! Congratulations!

Have you posted the Corthays on ebay? Would love to see those graphite Arcas!
