Fierce Footwear



You might recognize this designer's shoes from my earlier Shoe Gallery post. Raphael Young made his debut in 2007 and three years later is opening his flagship store on the famous rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau in Paris. Since his debut, Raphael has quietly created a name for himself with his highly innovative and architectural designs. He was mentored by his uncle, Alexandre Narcy, who was known as the principle shoe designer for Yves Saint Laurent. Raphael credits his uncle for grooming him to be the designer he is today. With innate talent and passion for footwear, he has creates shoes that are exquisitely crafted, incorporating space age designs and sculpted heels. Fun Fact: He had a brief stint in the Navy before pursuing his dream to be a shoe designer.

Those shoes are so cool... I'd have to say that the wedges with the lines going through them, the one that comes in black or white, are my favourite.

And your fun fact is kinda cute! This shoe designer must have some muscles on him... hmmm... ;)
