In 2005, Ludo, creative director of a leading athletic lifestyle brand, came across an article written by Petr Hlavacek describing the oldest shoes ever found. These belonged to Oetzi, the iceman, and dated back to 3300B.C. The shoes were quite remarkable considering the time period - made of deer skin stitched to a bear skin sole with an internal woven net filled with dried grass and moss for warmth and comfort. Inspired by Oetzi's ingenuity, Ludo realized he could redesign this iconic shoe incorporating today's trend, comfort and technology. Hence the concept of frenchsole shoes was born.

Simple and elegant black flats
Love these flats. Searched everywhere for something simple and low profile but elegant. These fit the bill. Don't love the tag on the back but small price to pay for perfect shoe otherwise. Very comfy and I did return my usual size for a 1/2 size larger. No squeaking or toe cleavage, comfy right out of the box!
I wanted to like these but they weren't comfortable on my arches. If you don't have high arches, they'll probably work!
FSINY bummed
Normally I love this brand but this shoe fits farther on the top of the foot than their normal flats.
Comfy dress shoe
I usually wear flats, so I'm pretty picky about comfort with any type of heel. These do have a pointy toe, so I needed a little break in time before a long night on dancing. Otherwise width was fine. I bought the burgundy, which is a rich color. Love the contrast band, which also keeps the shoe securely on.
Absolutely adore these shoes!
These shoes are very comfortable and cute. I also purchased this style in red suede. They have become my go to shoes.

They're also totally breathable, with a textile lining that absorbs moisture leaving the feet dry and comfortable. And there's really no friction when it comes to these flats, so say goodbye to painful blisters in French Sole.
