Founded 1935 in France
Based in Paris

Created by René and André Aubercy in 1935, the design house started as a menswear boutique and has been located since its creation at 34 rue Vivienne, in the Bourse neighbourhood.

In 1950, with the help of his friend Arturo Lopez, great mentor of Parisian life after World War II, Emile Aubercy was able to rub elbows with the great London shoe designers. During his stay in Great Britain, he immersed himself in the artisanal methods that have created the reputation and the style of English shoes.

Leading the design house since 1995, Xavier Aubercy represents the third generation of the Aubercy family business. In his desire to perpetuate the values of the brand, he has reorganised the work to move even closer to artisan practices. Aubercy is committed to offering its clients a high degree of personalisation in footwear.
