• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Hello Everyone!

It's been a long time coming we are finally on Styleforum as a Vendor. A brief introduction about us and what we do:

Established in 1994, we are a Vietnamese Shoemaker specialised in classically welted shoes and accessories. We have stores located in Hanoi, Da Nang, Ho Chi Minh City, Singapore and our latest addition in Melbourne. Our international arm operates out of Singapore.

We make shoes using the various techniques like Goodyear, Mckay (Blake), Bologna and the Hand-sewn welt. Services offered including a comprehensive range of Ready to wear (RTW) shoes as well as Made to Order (MTO). Leathers are sourced from tanneries in France, Italy & Spain (for Calf/Suede) and Argentina (Shell Cordovan). We can also work with exotics (Gator/Croc) upon request.

Our webstore (www.cnes.co) will be up soon so you can readily order shoes online with express courier (Fedex). We look forward to introducing fine Vietnamese craftsmanship to the SF audience and potentially work with like minded partners. For enquiries, please email us at [email protected]

Last year, we made our inaugural international appearance at the Stockholm Super Trunk Show 2019 organised by Shoegazing. You can find the report here:

Stockholm Super Trunk Show 2019 Report
"The biggest impression on the exhibition floor was likely made by CNES Shoemaker, one of Vietnam’s largest manufacturers of Goodyear welted shoes. With an impressive quality level of the finish and construction for very facile prices, they got many visitors to raise their eyebrows and also order a pair. Goodyear welted started at about €200, for SEK €25 more you got a narrow and extremely built-up waist, hand welted was at €420 and Goodyear in cordovan leather only at €480."

Stockholm Super Trunk Show 2019 Report by Misiu Academy
"The booth was probably the most prominent with a huge selection of shoes. Most of them Goodyear Welted however there is a Blake line, handwelted and even cordovan shoes for very competitive prices. Starting from around 210 Euros up to 500 for Shell Cordovan with the desire to penetrate the European market."

Shout out by The Shoe Snob 2020
"For those not in the know, CNES Shoemaker is a Vietnamese based company with shoes produced in Vietnam and distribution there as well as in Singapore. Traditionally they are goodyear welted producers but I recently saw a picture that would indicate a new handwelted range, soon coming. Apparently they have been around since 1994 but only recently have hit they worldwide map and now seem to be doing things very very differently, which inevitably caught my eye."

Measurement Chart

By measuring the length of your feet, it is possible to determine your shoe size. Please take into account if you have a wide forefoot or high instep. You may also consider how generous a fit you prefer - some like it snug and wait for it to break in, some like it loose with some space to wriggle around.

The chart below serves as a guideline for fitting. Please take note we have models of different widths - E, EE & EEE.

E - Standard
EE - Medium
EEE - Wide

Let me be the first to welcome you to the forum. I have seen your work during the Supertrunk in Stockholm, and was thoroughly impressed by the craftsmanship and level of detail. I was able to have a short chat with the owner of your company, who is a very kind person and real passion for shoes. I wish you all the best here!

(I am Tom by the way, owner of Sons of Henrey, who was also present in Stockholm during the Supertrunk :wink:)

A recent launch for Spring 2020, one of many more models in a Bologna Goodyear Construction. Something that is little seen in bench-grade shoemaking. It combines the flexibility of the Bologna at the forefoot, you get a tubular bag that is soft and flexible. From the arch to the heel it is a traditional Goodyear welt with a shank for stability. It is welted as per the Goodyear and can be resole.


This model is seen here on Crust calf with a hand mottling effect (also available in Black Annonay Calf)

I'm patiently waiting for your website to open so I, an American living in the U.S., can give you some business. I follow your Instragram page(s) and you make beautiful shoes.
