Centre Commercial debut footwear collection

December 18, 2012

After quickly establishing itself as a must visit shop in its native Paris, Centre Commercial has now developed and released their debut range of footwear. This collection of Derby style shoes takes inspiration from both traditional British footwear and Military uniforms and in turn produces great results.

The shoes are hand-crafted in a family run workshop in Brazil, using full grain leather from the tropical wetland of Pantanal, that’s ecologically tanned. Contrary to most leather which is processed with the use of heavy metals, this eco-tanned leather is chrome-free tanned, instead using extracts from acacia trees.

In addition to this, the shoes are also the first to feature crepe soles made from 100% Amazonian rubber. The Amazon happens to be the only place on earth where rubber trees grow in the wild and these are carefully tapped for their precious resource – once again sustainability and ecology are paramount.

The collection is available from the following stockists Centre Commercial (Paris), Merci (Paris), Isetan (Tokyo), Selfridges (London), Oliver Spencer (London), No Void Plus (Aix en Provence) and The Next Door (Avignon). For more information, go to the website here: Centre Commercial.

    Beautiful. I see no mention of price point so won’t hold my breath on owning a pair of these.

      They’re going to be around the £200 mark mate, so not cheap but not Tricker’s money either.
