The Rules Châtelet sandal was named after Gabrielle Émilie du Châtelet, the french mathematician and physicist in The Age of Enlightenment who studied infrared radiation and the nature of light. Despite a society that prevented women from higher education, Châtelet's intellectual curiosity prevailed, and she became one of the founder's of Newtonian Physics which is still studied today.
The Châtelet sandal features perforated leather in custom Broderie Anglaise patterns, built on a 0.75" platform of recycled cork wrapped in raffia, with a 4" solid wood heel that gives this buckled slingback a tropical, weathered beach vibe. John designed the Châtelet to be a natural heeled sandal for the eco-minded, fashion-forward individuals who like to prove that patriarchy is passé, and who are driven to prove the undiscovered.
