Based in Paris

Clairvoy was founded in 1945 by Edouard Clairvoy. The workshop on Rue Fontaine specializes in creating bespoke shoes for men and women, made in the purest rules of this craft. In the 60s, the House Clairvoy worked for the great cabarets of Paris as the Moulin Rouge. Today the tradition is perpetuated by Nicolas Maistriaux. Beyond the creation of unique models for musicals, the House Clairvoy developed a new range of dress shoes for men both colorful and refined.
