R · SANDERSON is the premium sister line of Rupert Sanderson London, distinguished by the unique hand-gilded 24-carat gold leaf heels and engineered lasts to ensure a supremely comfortable fit. Every pair of R · SANDERSON shoes is made by hand in Bologna, Italy, embodying traditional Italian craftsmanship with a distinctive avant-garde design.
British designer Rupert Sanderson founded his eponymous luxury shoe label in 2001 after working in Italy for Sergio Rossi and Bruno Magli. His design philosophy is ‘less is more’, concentrating on fit, length and shape to flatter and lengthen the leg.
Rupert has been awarded ‘Accessory Designer of the Year’ by the British Fashion Council and Elle Style Awards. His creations often grace the feet of Hollywood A-listers as well as royalties including The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.
R · SANDERSON is co-founded by Bertrand Mak and Rupert Sanderson, designed by Rupert and developed in conjunction with Bertrand employing a directly controlled bespoke atelier specifically to create new gold treatments and their expressions in shoe design.
