Christopher Coy is a new label creating a serious buzz in the luxury shoe market and it is the creation of Christopher Dixon and childhood friend and Carolina Panther Cortland Finnegan. Growing up in North Carolina both men were brought together by their love of sports, fashion and footwear.
Mr. Coy decided to act on his passion for footwear design by attending the Pensole Footwear Design Academy started by Jordan designer Dwayne Edwards. It was at this academy where Christopher’s technical design abilities was honed and he began to learn every facet of shoe design.
The intense studies at Pensole enabled Christopher Coy to become the inaugural FN Platform Future of Footwear Competition winner and to create a patented dual-heel design that is attention-getting and comfortable at the same time.
Each shoe is made from leather carefully obtained from select tanneries in Italy. Also, performance materials such as ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) and Poron are used to provide extra support for high pressure areas.
According to Dixon the Christopher Coy woman loves not only luxury clothing but luxury cars, locales and exotic animals. It is for this woman why Christopher Coy always creates beautiful and artisanal shoes that she can appreciate.
