Le Bespoke façon Bottier

“Le Bespoke façon Bottier”

Bespoke shoemaking: Take a classic sneaker and enhance it by infusing it with creativity using noble materials and the long-lasting know-how of the artisan shoemaker. Traditionally, bespoke is synonymous with custom-made ; but within the sneaker culture this term is commonly used to describe the specific type of customization we are performing at our shop. It involves de-constructing an original pair of sneakers then re-constructing it with materials that are more elegant and long-lasting ; as well as offering stylistic adaptations of the pattern within the original style.

Discover the pleasure of a pair of sneakers that is unique and of the highest quality, hand-made and that is a perfect match to your personal style.

The Bottier Toulousain, is a sound duo, Nico and Jeanman, a friendship blending the fervent passion of Sneakers and the shoemaker’s know-how.

Jean-Emmanuel

“I was deeply motivated to revive the know-how of shoe making in Toulouse, where the last artisan had ceased its activity some fifteen years ago. At the root of this project was my passion for a work that would allow me to be close to people and turn the attention to the value of the material by pairing the beautiful and the useful.

So I went on crafting shoes within a rather traditional and classic vein, until Nico knocked at the door of my shop. Nico, he looked like a cool guy and I thought that bespoke shoes and sneakers had a good ring to it, so we started working together.”

Nicolas

“Passionate about sneakers since I was little, I discovered Bespoke through social media : it was the perfect balance between my passion for sneakers and the family tradition of sewing.

So I started at home by pulling apart an old pair of sneakers, an old pair of jeans and using the good old sewing machine sitting in the garage, I made my first pair of sneakers. It boosted me to go see Jeanman the Bottier Toulousain to talk to him about this project. He told me : “Go ahead, I’m game !”. He also told me that he had cookies and coffee at the shop, so I never left.”

“Bespoke is much more than just custom-made sneakers, it’s a way of seeing and designing shoes, in some way it’s an extension of who I am.”
