Duke $2,460

The Duke was originally made for an old friend by Corthay’s bespoke workshop. This man had a vision of a shoe that would have a classic shape but a surrealist makeup. Some months later, a shoe that was unique in the custom-made world appeared Rue Volney.

The Duke is an intriguing three-eyelet Oxford with the face of a Cyclops: the eye, the preeminent symbol of the Surrealists, is represented on the shoe by upper quarters, skillfully outlined in fine stitching.

Love and Care

Putting the shoe on: The systematic use of a shoehorn is preferable. Indeed, it will make it easier to put on the shoe, as well as avoid deforming it and damaging the counter.


Removing: As much as possible, alternate the wearing of your favourite shoes to guarantee their longevity. The rule ‘a different shoe a day keeps the aging away’ is very true ... 


Pampering: Use a damp cloth to clean the surface of your shoes before letting them dry on shoe trees.

Nourish the leather with a renovating cream of its colour in circular movements with a clean cloth.

Allow to dry and then remove excess product with a brush with horizontal back and forth movements.

Finally, apply a wax of the same colour as the leather and rub your shoes with tights or a polishing glove to reveal their shine.
