    Presented here are a pair of superb Norwegians by the great 100 year old firm, the boutique French bootmaker, JOSEPH FENESTRIER, Paris, since 1895. They are, as you can see, a simple, sleet and supremely elegant quotation of a familiar classic model. The discrete lacing, the fine-sewn inlaying of the apron, the suede lining counter, and the molded toe all conspire to make this a very smart shoe; the massive double sole and combination heel make it an indestructible one. This is what the French call a triple sole shoe. Double or triple sole, this is “custom-made” build quality.

    In a world of overpriced, second-rate, glued together (or Blake-stitched) shoes masquerading as luxury under inflated brand names such as Prada, Gucci, Vuitton and others, this minor masterpiece by Fenestrier is the true luxury item. What distinguishes Fenestrier is the superb quality of the leather, the meticulous interior work (which the picture can only hint at) and the unadulterated classic line. All in all, a top, top quality shoe, and the best of the ready-mades to come out of France, and I include the giant Weston in my remark.
