Thierry Rabotin's collections do not follow trends or seasonable fashions. They are not conceived for a mass market. They are crafted for a niche of individuals who love the perfection of classical style with absolute comfort and want to wear shoes made with materials of the highest quality possible. Made in Italy by expert artisans, Thierry Rabotin's designs use his signature "sachetto" construction which mades possible the crafting of light weight shoes. A ligther weight means that it makes it easier to walk; the shoe permits the natural movement of the foot since all the components that usually make it rigid are missing. Only water-soluble glues that once dry do not develop harmful vapours are employed. A shock absorbing and transpiring material is inserted between the sole and the lining to lighten the articulations all along the foot. The perfect fit and maximum comfort that the sacchetto working method allows has always influenced the form of Thierry Rabotin's shoes and yet the stylistic concepts of true avant-garde design are never overlooked. The success of Thierry Rabotin's shoes is perfectly expressed in one of his quotes: "I like to design shoes that envelop the feet giving the pleasant sensation of walking barefoot."
