Discover the new capsule collection of the the Paris Saint-Germain soccer club (PSG), in collaboration with the Los Angeles-based footwear designer George Esquivel whose handmade shoes have been worn by the likes of Madonna, Nicole Kidman and Emma Stone. These shoes, man’s and woman’s, are handmade in California. Esquivel says that he drew his inspiration “from a modern Paris that has a taste for fair gesture, luxury and craftsmanship; A Paris that is constantly renewing itself to embody a resolutely modern elegance. I tried to create cool boots but with character and a marked attention to the craft details.”
The highlight of the collection is the navy leather Elkhart boots ($1,050), which feature red, white, and blue laces – the colors of the PSG uniform and, of course, the French flag. Esquivel designed the inky-blue style modeled here by the team’s star Brazilian defender, Marcos Aoás Corrêa – known to the world as simply Marquinhos – with the legacy of great Parisian artisans in mind, like heritage trunk maker Moynat, expertly combining classic French craftsmanship with the aesthetic of modern American street style.
Only 10 pairs were made available, with navy boot priced at 950 euros, or $1,050, for the men’s version and 850 euros, or $950, for the women’s.
