Shoes Of The Week - Aubercy


To reiterate on my theory of brands that don't really get thought of when mentioning a certain aspect within the shoe realm (i.e. Bespoke shoes, Italian makers, American shoe companies etc.), one brand that comes to mind is Aubercy. They make some of the nicest shoes I have ever seen but are often masked by the thought of Corthay and Berluti when thinking of French shoemakers. It makes you think that it is companies like this that should be respected, because they simply must live off good word-of-mouth from their loyal clients, as you never see any advertising of them nor can hardly find them anywhere outside of their shops in Paris. But believe it or not, they date back to 1935, and have been going strong ever since. With the way the world is working right now, where men are again starting to appreciate good quality on their feet, it would not surprise me if Aubercy was to get bigger and become more in demand, but then again, I feel like many of the Parisian shoe lines actually enjoy being small and exclusive......who knows.

Spat Boots Available At: Leffot

On another note, I am off to finalize my 7th pair of shoes that I started a little while ago (which you can see here). I can't remember if I get internet access at the B&B that I stay at so if you do not hear from me until Monday of next week, this is why. By the way, for those that keep up, I have decided to dye them green and give it a go at my own little personal patina.

Until next time,

  2. Aubercy are just designing the models. Their shoes are made by Enzo Bonafé in Italy : http://www.enzobonafe.com/

  4. By the way, most of the Aubercy are semi bespoke so you can change as many details as you wish.
    I ordered the boot model that you have posted in this thread but with a brogued captoe instead of plain, removed the leather ribbon over the front stich and choose a goodyear welt instead of blake (+350 EUR but handmade).

  5. Sybarite - That sounds like a pretty good price, are you sure that was it??? In the States, Aubercy cost around $1000? Lovely boots though, I definitely wished that I had a pair....Thanks again for all of the info.
