Thierry Rabotin Logo

Thierry Rabotin footwear speaks to fashion forward women of all ages who believe they should not sacrifice comfort or fit in the name of style. The high quality of the materials used and the scrupulous attention to detail built into every pair of shoes by Thierry Rabotin have been recognized and acclaimed around the world.

Lo Stilista

Thierry Rabotin expressed his design philosophy in one simple phrase:

I like to design shoes that wrap around the feet giving the pleasant sensation of walking barefoot

That continues to be the mission of the company that bears his name.

The legendary designer considered style and the details that contribute to a perfect fit to be equally essential elements of design. Over the last four decades, Thierry Rabotin has worked to find balance between form and function, creating elegant collections that mix style with both state of the art workmanship and artisan mastery.

Thierry Rabotin is one of the Italian shoe companies that still produces exclusively in Italy and sources materials from renowned Italian suppliers. Employing highly skilled artisans at every step of the production process is an essential part of our success. Thierry Rabotin believes that dedication to exceptional craftsmanship is the most important reason our company is able to produce such superior footwear.

All shoes, made using only selected leathers and fabrics of the highest quality, are produced at the Thierry Rabotin Parabiago Collezioni factory under the direction of Giovanna Ceolini and Karl Schlecht. The design studio and production facility are located in Alto Milanese, an Italian province near Milan, where the footwear craftsmanship has developed to be the best in the world.

Lo Stabilimento

Many years after the opening of his factory, Thierry Rabotin is among the few Italian shoe companies that still produce exclusively in Italy and buy all the components from renowned Italian suppliers.

Fatte a Mano in Italia

Highly skilled and committed artisans are a key part of our success. The journey of a Thierry Rabotin shoe from the designer’s sketch to the packaging is long and includes many stages of production.

Without our valuable craftmanship, the men and the women that work with great passion, Thierry Rabotin wouldn’t be able to produce such high quality shoes

Thanks to the bond with the footwear tradition, we have gone back in its history giving new life to the craft and the traditional techniques of generations of the best shoemakers. One of the characteristics of Thierry Rabotin is the ability to combine tradition with innovation. Although the Thierry Rabotin shoes are produced in a modern context, there is a preference for craftwork techniques that mainly employ the human hand.
