French, chic and classic, Robert Clergerie’s shoes are sexy yet practical. This venerable French footwear designer was the first to create a classic men’s-style shoe for women, and 30 years later, his women’s oxfords are arguably still the best ones out there. Clergerie’s mastery is not confined to the lace-up menswear-style alone; his collections include wedges with crisscross straps and several variations on the boot theme – think hip French motorcycle boots, hiking boots with clear soles and leather wedge boots. Robert Clergerie’s shoes are still manufactured by hand at his century old factory in Romans, France, and he’s still a stickler for comfort. Celebrity fans Blake Lively, Emma Watson and Rihanna would undoubtedly attest that Robert Clergerie’s pumps, platform sandals and wedges are built to last, and are as comfy as designer shoes get.
