Profile

Thierry Rabotin prides itself on crafting handmade and lightweight women’s shoes. The company constructs everything from slingbacks, mules, and sandals to moccasins, boots, and peep toes in Italy about fifteen miles from Milan. The 350-square-foot space is the brand’s US flagship. Rabotin is known for its “sacchetto” working method, using a full grain (handpicked) nappa lining and no metal components for top notch comfort. The flexible construction—an insole with a cushioned layer of memory foam—diminishes pressure and forms the shoe to your foot. But with quality craftsmanship come limited styles and high cost: heels are no higher than four inches (with two and a half being the average), the color range is “safe,” and prices start at $295 and go up to at least $450. On the plus side, this flagship is the only place in America where customers can purchase Rabotin’s selection of ankle- to knee-high boots ($500-$900).
