“Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world” – Marilyn Monroe once said. But you may be sure that goes for gentlemen as well, if not better. That's a fact. And facts do count. Discover the excellence of Saint Crispin's, not know by the masses, but for the connoisseur.
Saints Crispin and Crispinian are the Christian patron saints of cobblers, curriers, tanners, and leather workers.
