The Foehn is the name of a warm, light wind from the south that warms the shores of Lake Leman, where Pierre Corthay is from. It’s a lightness that can be felt immediately when wearing these new bootmaker sneakers. The sole has cork inserts, woven from technical nylon, but we hardly even notice once we’ve put them on. Only the envious glances from onlookers remind us that he has finally found an elegant balance between comfort and style. Perfect for wearing with jeans, you say? Yes, that’s fine too, but they also work for more strenuous exercise. Just imagine: without going into too much detail on these nautical laces, they would easily be the perfect match with shorter pants. Its only flaw? You won’t want to wear anything else. But a Corthay shoe is still a Corthay shoe: let them rest in shoe trees for at least a day before putting them back on.
