    The Arca is a great shoe for mimes.

    Perhaps you prefer the "Cocteau" production of the brothers Corthay ?

    Perhaps you prefer the Vendome solution from Corthay' brothers. It's a Richelieu golf without perforations ? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Georges you must stop this its killing me!! Too much beauty in one thread!

    I don't own any Corthay and am pretty much shoe-ed out with my Edward Greens and Gaziano and Girlings but I must say that I have drooled over the Corthay's I've seen on Leffot's website.

    Pierre certainly knows how to craft an elegant, stunning, beautiful shoe. I love them all!

    +1 Those are things of beauty ... I feel the same about some Vass I have - but I'll wear them when the time is right. If not, something for posterity.

    The Corthay brothers are very talented...

    They have very nice shoes in their shop and it is always a pleasure to go to Rue de Volnay to have a peek at them..

    I think the Arca is their most iconic model. I just think the 001 has too sharp of a side wall for my taste and I like chisel toed shoes. You don't like the 002 Arca?

    I really agree with you and if you make the project to visit Paris - France you must see the small new shop rue Volnay.

    Perhaps you will like the Kleber Richelieu too ?

    that's my impression, too + i find from my own experience thin soles very uncomfortable to walk in.

    I just don't "get" the Arca. Those two eyelets kill it for me. Some of the more traditional (if you could even go there with Corthay) models are far more appealing to my eye.

    Hi Georges, maybe this thread would really gain interest if you would be able for all us non-Parisians to post photos of the new Pierre Corthay shop. Thanks.
