Frau und Herr Nicolai
Shoes have always been her passion; her personal shoe collection consists of more than a 100 pairs. The ‘Frau Nicolai’ collection was established to fill in her personal need for shoes you cannot find anywhere else anymore. She is currently working on a men’s shoe collection which, of course, is called ‘Herr Nicolai’.
NEWShoes keeps an eye on upcoming shoedesigners and talented students, on their first collections and new shoe developments.
