The toe tap Aubercy is exclusive to our house and is made by our artisan cobbler named Francois. It is made from a blend close to brass but is much more solid than a traditional clamped toe taps. It required a few years of research to achieve. Its specificity is mainly to be able to be cut on-demand according to the exclusive needs of our customers. The Aubercy toe taps is therefore “Made-to-order” and can be applied to every shoe made on Vivienne Street, but also to all other shoes.
Just like for our patina, it is possible to chose the drawing in the shape of a “Tailcoat”, “Rounded”, in “Waves”, in “Claws” or “Initials” but also in other shapes yet to be imagined. This handy work requires 6 to 7 times more time than the normal press of a traditional clamped toe taps. It elevates this Haute Cordonnerie as a form of art.
