That is why I haven't mentioned before that Hester van Eeghen not only designs the most creative and artful handbags in the world (my opinion), she also designs shoes.
In 2001, Hester's passion for shoes was channeled into her very own shoe and boot designs. And ten years after she opened her flagship Amsterdam store for handbags at Hartenstraat 37, she opened her store dedicated to shoes down the street at Hartenstraat 1.
Hester van Eeghen's master Italian craftsmen produce such small quantities of each shoe that you rarely will see precisely the same leathers in the same design. In fact, chances are that the exact shoes featured in the photos I am posting below may not even exist today--but I guarantee you that a pair equally as magical will be there in her store. And as you might expect from Hester, her shoes are unique, expressive and charismatic.
And now, a little eye-candy!*
More photos of shoes and boots, including styles for men, will be coming soon in my next posts.
* Remember, you need to visit Hester's shoe store in Amsterdam to acquire her footwear! They do not ship to the U.S. and they are currently not available in the online boutique.
