I have just stumbled across this site via Google while searching for more information about my Edward Greens (three pairs in the past 12 months and I am hooked for life). Â What great information on this site. I am planning a trip to Paris at the end of next week and would like to visit some of the fine shoe shops there. Â I am trying to come up with a short-list. Â So far on the list I have: Altan Bottier (5 rue Sainte-Beuve) Aubercy (9 rue de Luynes Paris 7e; 34 rue Vivienne Paris 2e) Cape Cod (5 rue Pasquier) Crockett & Jones (23 rue FranÃ§ois) Pierre Corthay (1 rue de Volnay) I am interested in RTW items that aren't available in London. Â (And yes, I know Crockett & Jones is available in London, but the stock in Paris is different. Â For example in London C&J does not stock the beautiful "Lavilliers" C&J boot that I drooled over when I was in Paris in August last year.) A few questions for those who have been shoe shopping in Paris before: * Do you have suggestions for other places that I should add to the short-list above? * Does Pierre Corthay do RTW or only bespoke? * Does anyone have any info on the collaborations between Crockett & Jones and Dimitri. Â I have seen references to this on http://www.souliers.net but I can't read or speak French and the online translations aren't great. Thanks for reading.
