The Michel Vivien style

What is the Michel Vivien style?

Sobriety is my motto. I’m trying to balance women out in this crazy move of getting on heels. I operate on my own terms. My style is timeless, I surf season after season nicely.

What characterizes Michel Vivien shoes?

A shoe is made for moving, not just for shooting only. I forbid myself to make you suffer in order to beautify/emphasize you. I never drift from the object’s primary function, which is why I have 3 obsessions: quality, comfort, and elegance.
I especially work on day-to-day shoes. Your busy working lives deserve my full attention.

What do you like most about your job?

Its difficulty to say. To serve you is to seduce you!
