WHO WE ARE

______________

We are a shoe shop from the past, a time machine, a boutique from another era. Small, artisanal, and familiar. Our shoes are not manufactured in a factory, but instead are handmade in a workshop: one by one, gently, with tenderness and care, often customized to order, and made in Spain. Comme il faut. Although it may seem unbelievable, here in our shop it smells like leather, glue, parquet, of Paris, of candle wax, of macarons, of a story, of whims, and of miracles, because is not a miracle to be able to play with 110 different colours and 4 kinds of leather? We have penny loafers, ankle boots, brogue shoes and boots, derby shoes, brogue or smooth Mary Janes, sheepskin babyshoes and versaillinas from nº 15 to 41, all at the feet of the Marie-Antoinettes from this century. You’ll fall head over heels in love with the shoes that we make. We are a new shop modeled on the old ones, or in other words, a store difficult to find.

 If you visit El Prado museum and specially Goya´s paintings you may have noticed the French influence in fashion of the high society. In Spain the royal family was of French origin, and the influence of Versailles was discernible at court. One thing that remained constant through this century was the dominating large buckles on shoes.
