The Brand


Paris & London. Classic & modern. Timeless & contemporary. Artisan & Luxury.

This is Matthew Cookson. You’ll find our shops in Paris, on the Left Bank and the Right. You’ll find our hand-made products in famous stores around the world. You’ll see our shoes and slippers worn by some of the most celebrated people in the arts and industry – and also by anyone who admires clean, modern design underwritten by traditional construction.

Our collection of shoes is as wide as it is varied, and constantly refreshed by new models. Our slippers combine exceptional comfort with unique individuality. Our smoking jackets are the last word in luxury style. Our accessories combine artisanal construction with stylish quality. They all share this family pedigree: classic English quality with elegant French design.

Welcome to Matthew Cookson. Let us put the world at your feet.


Twenty-years ago, I brought my family’s brand, to the city of Paris. My shoes had a reputation for very English qualities: premium materials, impeccable construction. Over the years, I gave a more international expression to the collection by stressing modern design and luxury finish. The Paris line proved so successful that I gave it a new name, my own – Matthew Cookson.

Believe me, I take shoes very seriously. If I’m not travelling looking for new materials, new workshops, new ideas, you’ll find me in one of my stores. And not in the office, but behind the counter – where I can talk to customers and display my collection personally.

Today the collection contains the most original shoes yet produced, led by our celebrated slippers, and features new models, new lasts and new materials that combine French flair with (just a little) British eccentricity.
