OUR STORY

PARISIAN, TIMELESS, ROMANTIC

Shine in flats!
"Reject the dictatorship of high heels and say no to the
banality of ballerinas", such is the motto of François du
Chastel. For him, it's possible for women to be beautiful and
seductive in flats:

Chatelles was born of passion: François fell in love with a girl
to whom he decided to offer a pair of slippers that had been
specially designed just for her. Engraved on the inside of these
slippers was the following verse by Victor Hugo:

"I CANNOT LIVE... FAR AWAY FROM YOU ANY LONGER."

The thunder struck immediately. She fell in love with the slippers,
broke up with François and promptly left with the shoes...

François du chastel

In 2012, François ditched his job at a London investment
bank in order to found his start-up.

He launched Chatelles, the young Parisian fashion house
producing purely feminine slippers, almost customizable with a
large choice of tassels or initials: it was the birth of an iconic shoe.

François' calling is to create the only brand which is entirely
devoted to women slippers to match elegance, comfort and
to look sparkling on women's feet.

Since then, with more than 150 original styles having been
produced in a huge selection of materials and colors,
Chatelles offers all women to shine in flats without sacrificing
their femininity nor their rock chic side.

Our production

OUR MANUFACTURING IS 100% EUROPEAN AND HANDMADE:
COMFORT & QUALITY

Chatelles slippers are handmade. Inspired by English history, designed in Paris, then made from the best Italian leather by the expert hands of the artisans in our workshop, found in a little village in the North of Portugal.

The insole was created following the advice of a podiatrist: 9mm of comfort and four layers (latex heel, a second latex layer, then an antibacterial Sanitized® insole and finally an insole of natural leather with a Victor Hugo verse engraved on it). The heel is 14mm-high and is made from natural rubber.

La Marque
All in all, more than 2cm in height of real comfort, beneficial for one’s
knees, back and neck. They’re ideal for walking around and for any
occasion. The exterior sole is made of recycled lasting materials, the
leather aspect is ultra resistant, flexible enough to absorb shock and
what’s more – 100% waterproof!

At Chatelles we are very concerned about the environment and the
importance of sustainable development, that’s why we have chosen to
locally produce in Europe from sustainable sources for our finished
products. Even our boxes are made out of recycled paper and soy ink; we
are just trying to make something better for the environment.
