A stunning pair of designer shoes by Jan Jansen, Dutch Master Shoe-maker and Designer, with green floral motif.
Jan Jansen has described his shoes as “highly individual creations because I don’t think commercially. I just follow my intuition because I’m not afraid of failure.” These beautiful shoes demonstrate the artistry of this unique and passionate shoe-maker.
Ideal for the Wearer, ideal for the Collector!

These gorgeous platform shoes with leather ankle ties are hardly worn. The outer soles of the shoes would suggest that they may only have been worn inside on carpet. Most of the wear seems to be on the inside of the sole around the toe area but this, in itself, is minimal. There is a mark in one shoe in the peep-toe area which looks like it may have been residue of a fixing agent used in the construction of the shoe but I’m just guessing. I have not attempted to remove or clean it. I’m not sure of the year they were made but they are a stunning pair of shoes either to wear or to keep as a Collector’s Item.
Jan Jansen opened his studio, in 1964, in Amsterdam where he hand-crafted his first shoes. He works with the love of his life, and muse, Tonny. This revered master shoe builder has created many innovative shoes over the decades, working with fashion houses such as Dior and Gucci along the way. In the 1970s he designed the High-heeled Sneaker and, in 2022, he celebrates his 80th birthday.
The original box has some wear with a small tear in the side of the top of the box.
