Women’s styles from Thierry Rabotin that you’ll reach for year after year.

Certain wardrobe staples typically cost much more than others, especially when it comes to a great pair of high-quality shoes. What to look out for: handcrafted construction, timeless style, and engineered comfort. Investment pieces from Thierry Rabotin use top-quality Italian leathers and natural materials rendered in their signature sacchetto method. These products provide you a customized fit and feel that ages well over time. Read on to see and shop our favorites from the collection that check off all of our boxes.

A Hanig’s exclusive, the Thierry Rabotin Bosco 1831MD is a simple flat updated with a weatherized twist. The women’s loafer is built with a soft leather upper insulated with plush shearling lining for warmth whether you’re indoors or outside. Its Poron® Comfort insole is lightweight, giving you the extra support you need to make it through a day of walking and standing. The slipper is fitted with a low heel and logo printed rubber outsole to prevent slipping. Wear Bosco 1831MD slip-on shoes to the office with a long-sleeved, asymmetrical blouse and wide-legged pants cropped at the ankle. The style is perfect for transitioning into for your commute home, as well!

The Mahaia 2301 ankle bootie comes in black suede for the new season. Its quilted satin collar adds textural contrast, featuring an asymmetrically wrapped opening for easy slip-on comfort and wear. The wedge heel is covered for minimalist, refined styling. This wedged ankle boot for women rests on top of a durable rubber outsole that helps keep the foot stable. Pair this boot with a chic coat, denim jeans, and a turtleneck top. Alternatively, opt for a cozy look in a knit dress layered underneath a maxi-length cardigan on the weekend.

Another favorite from the Thierry Rabotin range is the Malberta 2306 boot. Bringing together aesthetics of playfulness and sophistication, it features a patent leather upper styled with velvet ribbon laces threaded through oversized silver-tone grommets. The curved edge at the top is designed to fit the shape of the calf for a natural fit. The textile tongue is gusseted to keep out debris. The medial side zipper offers quick entry and exit. This women’s boots get a lift from a concealed wedge heel for feminine height that pairs well with both dresses and pants. A treaded rubber outsole finishes the look, promoting a surefooted step and durability. We love the Malberta 2306 boot paired up with a tunic shirt layered over thick leggings. For work, try a high-neck sweater tucked into a belted A-line midi skirt for a smart yet seasonally-appropriate ensemble.
