David Balazic

Founded 2011 in Hungary
Based in Nagymaros

My name is David Balazic. I moved to Budapest as a young French shoemaker in 1994. I got my workmanship from the masters of the workshop of Berlutti. After that I was employed as a master-shoemaker in a fancy-workhouse (Hermes) in Paris. Now I live and work in a country town - in the heart of the Danube-bend, in Nagymaros. I make elegant, hand-stiched shoes and I also repair shoes. I try to revive a profession, which takes its power from the past. Everybody is welcome, everyone who likes the work of high standard!
