Fodor's Expert Review La Botte Gardiane
Craftsmanship and style that won't wreck your budget—that's the trademark of this artisan bootmaker that hails from the Camargue, a wild area of Provence where gypsies and cowboys require durable boots to rustle the wild horses. That doesn't mean the boutique is short on chic. La Botte Gardiane has impeccably designed and beautifully classic full-length boots, slouchy booties, chukkas, espadrilles, and strappy sandals in suede, python, shearling, and the supplest calf leather from the tanner that supplies Hermès. Look for styles for men, women, and kids.
