Dimitri Bottier

Founded 1891 in France
Based in Paris

Dimitri Gomez, bespoke shoemaker (or maître bottier in French), constructs entirely by hand bespoke shoes for the most demanding of customers.

Dimitri works out of the boutique of Crockett & Jones, under the gaze of shoe enthusiasts who consider him to be one of the most talented bespoke shoemakers in the world.

An international clientele relies on him to realise their most daring inspirations. Dimitri transforms dreams into masterpieces of elegance and beauty.

Offering a very broad selection of lasts and patterns, as well as rare hides from best tanneries, Dimitri Gomez constructs unique works reflecting individual desires.

You will find on this site a presentation of his models both bespoke and made to order (the 'Bottier' line), a detailed explanation of his construction technique (which he is now one of the last to use) as well as his latest creations. Welcome to the world of truly exceptional shoes.
