Thierry Rabotin, looking for lightweight shoes – spotted at Micam Milano

“Our light, fresh collection stands out in comparison to the bleak and gloomy period we have just experienced”, explains the designer Massimo Balbini, illustrating the new spring-summer models designed for Thierry Rabotin. “The mood is almost relaxed – he continues – but faithful to the brand’s philosophy: the focus is on the anatomy of the foot, on women and their role in the world”. Shoes represent our first mean of transport, according to the heir designer of monsieur Rabotin, therefore they must be able to support a dynamic, free and independent femininity. To offer maximum comfort, Thierry Rabotin shoes are made with the slip lasting processing, elastic materials and the very soft lamb nappa; furthermore, the insoles are in Poron® (memory foam material, shock absorber and antibacterial). “Functionality defines the style and aesthetics, not the other way around. The stretch fabric is an essential component of our collections due to its capability of modeling itself on different foot shapes. All components use to work with are very light and the heels, which are never too high and thin, offer the ideal support “.

Art Deco inspires the new Thierry Rabotin collection with linear motifs on softer materials. The couture line dominates the scene with elegant shoes embellished with sporty chic details. The Fifty-12 sneaker capsule, on the other hand, represents an alternative to bet on: originality and accurate workmanship are combined with very light and soft materials keeping a young spirit and the most comfort. “Our quality shoe last over time. We are talking about a sustainable product, whose seaming processing is carried out almost exclusively by hand”. Moreover, the company is proud of its reduced energy consumption and short supply chains that minimize consumption and distances for the transport of raw materials.
