​Thierry Rabotin, Gelso

​Thierry Rabotin, Gelso

Jun 15th 2018

We know, we know! The very last thing that you want to think about right now is the fall season, especially when summer isn’t quite here yet! But hear us out because we’ve got an ankle bootie that you must see. We at Hanig’s are thrilled to give you a sneak peek of what to expect from the fall 2018 collection with a first look at a new Thierry Rabotin style. Like always, the world-renowned designer has managed to marry modernity with serious comfort in a fresh, exciting way. The Gelso ankle bootie, available in timeless black and jewel-inspired red, is a minimalist bootie fitted with cutting-edge insole technology and an easy slip-on style perfect for the woman on the go.

The Thierry Rabotin family has perfected the sacchetto technique for years in order to give their fans styles that are not only hard-wearing and crafted of exquisite materials, but that also support foot health for a lifetime. Gelso is cut from superior suede with a supple texture and is designed utilizing an expert execution of the brand’s signature method. For all of the new lovers of Italian craftsmanship, the sacchetto technique is an ages old method that eliminates seams for a more natural fit. It makes for a lightweight shoe without any of the irritation associated with some high-end footwear. The Gelso bootie’s seamless construction and elasticized gussets hug the foot and create a sensation of walking on air. The round toe provides room for all ten toes to spread naturally, while a sculpted counter lightly supports the ankle with every stride. This style is finished off with a moderately cushioned footbed achieved through Poron innovation. Poron insole technology is a high-performance cushioning that is characterized by air permeable open-cells that resist collecting moisture and perspiration on the skin’s surface. Unlike other typical cushioning on the market, Poron materials maintain their size, shape, and fit, which may reduce your chances of developing calluses and blisters. This exceptional cushioning is designed to withstand breaking down even after multiple impacts to ensure you get plenty years of wear out of your favorite shoe styles.

Gelso Boot

We’re dreaming of the Thierry Rabotin Gelso bootie in black paired with dark denim jeans and a long-sleeved buttoned down shirt for casual Friday at the office. Team up the red version with a turtleneck sweater and creased straight-legged pants for a look that’s mature, yet fashion-forward on date night. We love either color when worn with leggings and an oversize plaid patterned tunic for a look that’s relaxed and boyish. The possibilities are truly endless, but whichever way you choose to wear it, Thierry Rabotin’s Gelso shoe will meet you halfway and complement the way you express your sense of style.
