Thierry Rabotin Guenda Smoking Slipper

January 30 2018 05:16 PM

thierry rabotin shoesGirl. The Thierry Rabotin Guenda, a classic black smoking slipper, is now available for purchase at Hanig’s. This plush leather and suede smoking slipper is lightweight and slips on easily for effortless, androgynous style.

Kick it Like the Leisure Class

Originally worn as indoor entertaining shoes by brandy swirling, cigar puffing gentlemen of the late Victorian era, the smoking slipper has come into fashion time and time again. Casual yet comfortable, it’s no surprise why the smoking slipper has been an androgynous darling of fashion for the last 150 years or so.

Thierry Rabotin has taken some creative license with Guenda while respecting the traditional look and feel of the smoking slipper. Fashioned out of perforated suede and nappa leather, Guenda has just enough detail to complement a patterned pair of cigarette pants and a luxe velvet jacket.

Extra Support Where You Need it

One of the best things about Thierry Rabotin shoes is the thought and care that’s put into the design and construction of the shoe. Each pair of Thierry Rabotin shoes is designed to be extremely comfortable and suitable for long periods of wear. The shoes are then constructed by hand in Italy using a method that ensures the shoe will conform to the foot and won’t rub or injure the foot a la blistering.

Thierry Rabotin’s shoes also come complete with removable shoe inserts, and sometimes have bonus features as well. The Guenda is one of those shoes with a special feature: inside of this sleek and sexy smoking slipper you will find a hidden arch support that will keep your feet happy day in and day out. So, if you find yourself in a situation where you have to do a lot of walking or standing, consider Guenda your go-to fabulous comfort shoe.

Thierry Rabotin’s Barton Sandal: An On-trend Platform for Spring

January 16 2018 07:42 PM

thierry rabotinWhile winter in Chicago is a most wonderful time of year full of laughter and cheer, we’ll never quite get used to the arctic temperatures, perilous ice, and mounds of snow that just makes life move that much more slowly. That’s why we at Hanig’s are looking past this dreary season and onward to springtime!

With less than 90 days left until the season of rebirth, we suggest that you start picking out new shoes now to prepare. We’ve looked to the runway to bring you a shoe trend that will be one of the most popular for the forthcoming season, so that you can start updating your closet with what’s in, right now.

Thierry Rabotin is Getting Ready for Spring


thierry rabotin barton sandalsDesigners showcased an array of attributes on the runway for spring 2018. From flamboyant feathers and twinkling jewel embellishments to color-blocking and novel textile mixes, trends for the next season are offbeat and eclectic. Like always, we think that a great pair of shoes should not only be fun and on-trend, but also comfortable. One spring 2018 trend that fits the bill is the chunky platform.

We looked to Italian brand Thierry Rabotin to fulfill our vision. Thierry Rabotin footwear is crafted from the finest materials in their very own factory. The brand promises to provide fashion-forward high-end styles in designs that support the foot’s natural arch. We’re in love with their options for the spring season and our current favorite is the Barton sandal in patent leather.

Thierry Rabotin Barton Sandals Exude Summer Style


The Barton features a classic slingback strap with a simple hook and loop closure for easy pull-on wear. The cradled insole hugs the foot while walking and standing. Two straps wrap across the upper and lower vamp to offer a modish aesthetic. The lacquered finish adds an understated shine. And the cutout platform is not only en vogue, but lightweight and provides stability during wear.

thierry rabotin sandalsExpress your personal style when you add the Barton sandal to a pair of ultra-cool leather leggings and a semi-sheer blouse for the weekend. Or save them for festival season and partner up this sandal with a loose-fitting romper and drawstring bucket bag for a look that’s youthful and relaxed.

Thierry Rabotin Sandals: Easy To Keep Looking Great

We know that you’ll love the easy care style of the Barton sandal, too. The patent finish is created by treating leather with a synthetic solution to give it its characteristic high shine and reflective surface. This treatment ensures minimal cleaning and should be done with a damp cloth. Over time, patent leather can lose its luster, though. We recommend using a liquid solution specifically formulated to restore shine. Keep your new sandals properly stored in their sturdy box to keep the straps from bending, creasing, and twisting.

The Thierry Rabotin Barton sandal is available in a timeless black, pristine white and vibrant red shine. Have them sent to your home via free ground shipping when you purchase online, or come into one of our two convenient Chicago shoe store locations at Plaza Del Lago in Wilmette and the John Hancock building downtown.

Thierry Rabotin Grace Ballet Flats

January 12 2018 04:17 PM

thierry rabotin shoesHanig's Footwear is proud to offer a timeless favorite for the Winter season: the Thierry Rabotin Grace ballet flats in Beige Etoile and Red Suede. These ultra cushy, ultra comfortable ballet flats are designed for extended wear and are an excellent option for women who struggle to find a stylish shoe that can accomodate a hard-to-fit foot or a medical condition.

Lasting Comfort for Every Body

thierry rabotin grace flatsThe Grace Ballet Flat is a fantastic choice for women who want to look stylish, but also need to accommodate physical conditions like low arches, plantar fasciitis, or arthritis. The memory foam midsole and defined arch support of the Grace supports the bottom shape of the foot and provides the cushioning and support needed for alleviating any sort of joint or bone discomfort.

The soft, natural leather upper of the Grace conforms to the top of the foot and creates a sensation of walking around barefoot (or in your favorite pair of bunny slippers if you prefer to think of it that way). The added level of comfort you get from the leather upper comes from Thierry Rabotin using  sacchetto stitching. In the sacchetto construction, the shoemaker places a single piece of leather over a form and molds it into a seamless shoe that is more flexible and conforming to the feet.  The end, result, of course, is a shoe that’s so deliciously cushy you may never want to take it off.

Sparkle for Days in Beige or Red Flats

thierry rabotin womens flatsHandcrafted by skilled Italian artisans, the rounded toe and subdued detailing of the Grace make this shoe an excellent and versatile choice for formal wear, casual wear, or both. The beige etoile or red colors are especially perfect for rounding any outfit with a pop of color.

Want to add a little panache to an outfit with a pair of jeans or black pants? Throw on your red or beige Grace flats to finish your look and set the day or night aglow. Whether you’re running errands, holding a meeting, or going out about town, you will sparkle everywhere you go in your Grace ballet flats.

And, if you ever find yourself in a scenario where you absolutely have to forgo winter boots for a pair of more stylish shoes, the Grace has your back. Thanks to the high cut on the shoe’s upper, this ballet flat will give you a little extra protection against cold weather conditions while helping you look the part for whatever function you need to attend.
