Collection: La Botte Gardiane



La Botte Gardiane, an ode to tradition, a celebration of authenticity and quality. Founded in the heart of the Camargue in the late 1950s. Old and new models rub shoulders, functional products that age well and can be repaired with care. La Botte Gardiane doesn't make work boots or sandals, but travel and road companions. With the option of customizing the leather or the measurements of a wide range of shoes. Every pair of shoes leaving the workshop is crafted with meticulous precision, fusing comfort, quality materials, longevity and, most importantly, elegant, timeless design.

La Botte Gardiane is deeply rooted in the values it holds dear. Quality, durability and repairability are essential criteria beyond style. Raw materials are carefully selected from ancient tanneries where relationships go back decades, and every step of the production process is carefully thought out to minimize impact on the planet. La Botte Gardiane also advocates respect for artisan traditions and craftsmen. Each bootmaker works with passion and expertise, bringing his or her unique know-how to every shoe. The company values apprenticeship and encourages the transmission of this ancestral know-how, which is now part of the French "métiers d'arts", thus contributing to the durability of an exceptional craft of which it is the ultimate holder.

La Botte Gardiane's expertise is recognized worldwide for its quality. Every step of the manufacturing process is carried out by hand, using traditional artisan techniques. From carefully selected leathers to precise stitching, every detail is meticulously crafted to produce products of exceptional quality. La Botte Gardiane's manufacturing process skilfully combines tradition and modernity. Craftsmen master age-old techniques while using state-of-the-art equipment, guaranteeing optimal comfort and remarkable durability.
