Details, details, details. The most important factor that distinguish a great pair of shoes from a good pair is detail. No, I’m not talking about the pair of shoes you buy at a department store, I’m talking about the pair of shoes that were crafted by hand, from start to finish. Jacques & Demeter, hailing from Paris, are 100% dedicated to providing an amazing, handcrafted pair of shoes. Born in 2011, the brand was created for the sake of preserving the essence of craftsmanship of the entrusted French workshops that manufacture each and every pair. All models are conceived and designed in Paris. Assembled by hand by experienced craftsmen at a workshop in Maine-et-Loire that has been creating shoes since 1859. Not only do they have the best workshop, the use of exceptional leathers from mostly French and occasionally Italian tanneries with the detail that they add creates one unique pair of shoes. Taking classic shapes like the famed Double Monk, Chukka, Brogue, and Oxford’s and adding a new type of color story or material is what they do best. Taking the best aspects of shoe design and putting them into one exceptional pair of shoes is something that they pride themselves on, and something they do extremely well.
