From father to daughter
"The story began in 1979, almost 40 years ago. My father, André Victor, a pharmacist in Paris, fell in love with beautiful shoes... He then decided to create "British Shoes": a store entirely dedicated to shoes box that brings together know-how, quality, robustness, comfort and style.
A true scout, he never ceased to bring together in one place brands and models that are benchmarks in terms of English shoes. “His shop was his home”, a place he left his mark on and which today is a historic site.
When I took over the British Shoes “house” in 2009, I wanted to keep the soul of the store. Its unique and unusual character.
I added my personal touch to offer the best of today's English footwear."
Sonia, daughter of André Victor Marzuk

"I had a crush when I discovered Vu Theara's photos on Instagram (more than 1.2 million subscribers to his account today). When I asked him to translate through his photos the soul of the British Shoes store in Paris, he accepted with ease. More than a talented photographer, he is a deeply human person that I had the chance to meet."
