Centuries of Craftsmanship

THE MASTER BOOTMAKER OF HOUSE LAREYMONDIE

A handicraft and ancestral know-how
Training, passion and dedication

Lareymondie artisans did not learn their craft overnight. They represent generations of learning.

They have depth of knowledge in the morphology of the foot and the leg, and longtime familiarity with the finest leathers in all their variants. They’ve put in years of practice honing their skills in handcrafting each piece. For all of us here, this is a labor of love.

This is why the House of Lareymondie has created a haute couture collection.

It is when you enter the bootmaker’s workshop that you grasp the extent of this handicraft know-how. Creators’ silence reigns, only slightly punctuated by manual tools. No machines here. In order to create a pair of boots or shoes, the craftsman sometimes works up to 50 hours and respects various stages: taking size, creating the pattern, making the stem, cutting the leather, assembly, pricking, laying the sole, creation of the shoetree, soaking, lustring.

“Creators’ silence reigns, only slightly punctuated by manual tools.”

Lareymondie Couture: Perfection matched with customization.

Lareymondie Couture represents the ultimate labor of love. They feature training handed down through generations, skills honed over years of practice and a painstaking attention to detail, all coming together to suit unique tastes and needs. This is why no two pieces of Lareymondie Couture are exactly alike—each is meticulously crafted over months to produce a work of beauty that is yours and yours alone.

Every phase of the process follows classic couture methods—no short cuts, no machine fixes, no assembly line, and absolutely no glue. It’s meticulous cutting, stitching, dyeing and polishing to create a work of beauty. This is how Lareymondie Couture shoes truly come to life.

“It takes only minutes to describe the process but days, weeks and months to finish. And with Lareymondie Couture shoes, it’s worth every minute, because they last a lifetime and beyond.”
