Parisian leather shoes from loafers to classic cuts

25 October 2017

SOME say the days of a pair of men’s shoes lasting a lifetime are long gone. How wrong they are – find yourself a master craftsman who uses quality materials and skills, then pay the right price, and you shall have them.

Shoemaker Altan, based at rue de Miromesnil in Paris, have been making shoes since 1973, with ready-to-wear and bespoke creations from loafers to classic cuts. Plenty of flamboyance, too.

Sophisticated and no-frills, this handmade Oxford ‘Aramis’ shoe is shown in Cognac patina. Other patina colours available include Aubergine, Night Blue and Chocolate. Price €541.67
