In Love With Bottines

We’ve always had a little crush on small, traditional shoe factories producing the highest quality footwear. In “Bottines” we found true craftsmanship mixed with
timeless and elegant design. What else could a real shoe lover ask for?

The small scale factory where the boots are made today was founded in 1958, in a town between Nîmes and Montpellier. The bookmakers rapidly became specialists
in making ‘Camargue’ cowboy boots for local horse riders and country folk. The family business is currently run by two brothers and their sister who were given
an award in 2007 for their “Manufacturing Excellence” and craftsmanship by the French Ministry of Economics. The European fashion house Celine also commissioned
them to make boots in recent years.

All the shoes are made with the best leathers and suèdes from France. The skins are tanned with vegetable dyes using oak, rosemary and chestnut. All products are
of a very high quality and are 100% French made.

I found these great boots through a French friend of mine in 2010 and was frequently asked by women – where did you get these amazing boots?!
So I started to import them to the Netherlands in 2011 and I am now happy to be able to offer them worldwide via our website

On occasion there may be an order process time of 6 weeks owing to the handmade nature of the boots, however they have many sizes in stock.
