Created in 2001 by two friends passionate about shoes. Arnaud Zannier and Enrique Corbi launched n.d.c (nom de code) to bring something different to the footwear industry. There are 4 key factors in every n.d.c. collection - simplicity, quality, originality and constructional know how. Passionate about shoes, they try to work with a wide variety of traditional constructions, materials and finishing techniques every season. Artisan hand-crafted with leather carefully selected from Europe's best tanneries, n.d.c. products are "works of art".

coming soon to gravitypope for fall 2009

Posted Jul 24, 2009 by gravitypope in repetto, acne, fall 2009, marc by marc jacobs, georgina goodman

This is one the best times of the year. Sale prices get slashed and all of the new and amazing product for fall 2009 starts to come in as well. We've already uploaded some great new men's shoes and new women's shoes at gravitypope. But some of the highly anticipated brands are yet to come in and today we wanted to do a little feature on some of the shoes we at gravitypope just can't wait to receive.

For men, this has to be the Quoddy moccasins, hand made in Maine since 1909. These are exceptional in quality, craftsmanship and style and all are signed by the craftsman who made them as well. Want to know when they arrive? Stay informed by signing onto the gravitypope newsletter for Quoddy and all of our new fall collections will start to come in. Marc by Marc Jacobs is always highly anticipated; their fall winter 09 collection has some great styles that Fashion Magazine noted in their most recent August 2009 issue. The blue nubuck peep toe with geometric heel is a guaranteed show stopper while the crocodile printed loafer offers an academic feel and would look amazing on any prof or student as they stroll across quad.

Platforms are definitely making their mark this season (have you seen T & F Slack?) and the Acne atacombe is the modern version for fall 2009. Acne has been a gravitypope favorite for years and with such attention to detail, the Swedish label/design studio is garnering well deserved attention. More Acne clothing and Acne footwear can be found at gravitypope.com with some great spring summer collections recently marked down.

Booties are extremely popular this year with many designers, but a beautiful bootie is yet to come from Gerogina Goodman. Always a great choice when looking for a heel that will stand out, Georgina Goodman's patent toe cap bootie is feminine and stunning with a beautiful floral print by Erdem Moralioglu. Many on staff are dying to see this one in person.

Repetto has always had a name when it comes to ballet flats, but the recent fervor of Kate Moss wearing the jackson (in honour of the late and great Micheal Jackson) has caused a complete sell through in Europe. Don't worry, the gravitypope order is coming and should be here soon. If you want to know when, sign onto the gravitypope newsletter or check back here on the gravitypope shoe blog and you'll be one of the first to know when it arrives.

cydwoq - fall 2009

Posted Jul 21, 2009 by gravitypope in cydwoq, fall 2009

Since 1996, Rafi Balouzian has been crafting the Cydwoq line in Burbank, California with a complete production facility allowing Rafi the ability to create and design as inspiration hits. Being a firm believer in form following function, Rafi translates the shape and contours of the human foot into a unique sole design adapted to this century. Inspiration is take from nature and using vegetable dyed Italian leathers, biodegradable glues, reusable and recycled materials for the packaging of hand made Cydwoq shoes, Rafi is able to return the favor to such a valuable source of inspiration.

T & F Slack Shoemakers London

Posted Jul 15, 2009 by gravitypope in fall 2009, t and f slack

With the belief that shoe archetypes should be revisited at the beginning of each season, Tim and Fiona Slack work with their workshops in London and Salinas Spain to create strong and stylish shapes that are both wearable and individual.

The starting point was T&F Slack hand making shoes in the 1970's under the name WALKERS. The shoes were post modern and avant garde. This attention to detail makes them individual and timeless.
