Bobbies: ready for summer shoes, gentlemen ?

Feb 22, 2016 | Parisian Eye

Winter is almost over, and with spring coming up, it’s time to start thinking about your summer looks ! I love this time of the year when we can dare a little more with our shoes. Created in 2010 by Frenchies Antoine Bolze and Alexis Maugey, Bobbies is one of the coolest shoe brands around: it’s the first Parisian brand of colorful and offbeat loafers. 

A lovely alternative to the too often boring men’s classics, Bobbies rewrites the codes each season by reinterpreting the greatest classics in the name of shoes. Mocassins, desert boots, ankle boots, sandals, and ballets flats are all twisted with a touch of vibrant elegancy  and originality. 


Bobbies shoes are made and hand stitched in Portugal, with the finest Italian leathers such as suede and nubuck for the spring and summer collections, ensuring they are lightweight, flexible and light. The touch that makes all the difference definitely is the wide range of colors offered… It always gives me a hard time choosing a favorite pair ! 
This summer’s new additions to Bobbies collection for men include striped textiles, lightweight rubber and rope soles. 

And since every story must have a hero and every brand a logo, it’s a pelican that embodies Bobbies, as a symbol of warmth and vitality. Jean-Bobby, proudly carrying his name, has become the trendiest of all French pelicans…
