Last Thursday, George and Lisa Corbo graciously hosted an evening with famed shoe designer, Rocco P at their most coveted, Euro-atmospheric styled boutique in Yorkville.
If you have ever wanted fabulously expensive blue suede shoes or even a purple pair of boots exactly like Madonna’s, George C is the spot in Toronto for die hard Rocco P enthusiasts to converge!
There are books as thick as Webster’s dictionaries filled with optional textures, colors, leathers and suedes; high gloss, low gloss, snakeskin and metallics, all with the promise of a 6-8 week delivery!
Of course, this kind of customization doesn’t come cheap ($800 and up) but we’ve heard plenty of testimonial from Rocco P followers that the investment is easily justified by the comfort, timelessness and wearability – they’re so soft inside you don’t even need socks and a pair of these classic styled shoes or boots are sure to last for ever!
George C, located at 21 Hazelton Lanes is the exclusive retailer of a few designer labels in Toronto including Costume Nationale, Project Alabama, La Silla footwear and J Brand denim.
