The story behind the brand POM D'API
The Pom d'Api expertise has been passed on since 1870. This leading children's shoes brand has always stood out for its quality and creativity.
Before Pom d'Api there was Jean-Baptiste Rautureau, an artisan shoemaker and creator of the Vendée shoe repair shop in Gaubretière. Passionate about his trade, he passed on his unique savoir-faire and workshop to his son, who then passed it on; a real family story which has been preserved for generations.
Almost one hundred years after the creation of the first shoe repair shop, the great-grandchildren of Jean-Baptiste, Guy and Yvon Rautureau, joined the family business, then called ERG: Etablissement Rautureau Gaubretière. They created their first collection of children's shoes, made with the same care and diligence as in the family workshop: models created from high-quality materials.
The Pom d'Api brand as we know it today was born in 1973 when Guy and Yvon decided to unleash their creativity by developing a range of children's shoes. This range is immediately recognisable by the originality of its high-quality models and in 1976 was awarded the Creativity Oscar in Milan.
The Pom d'Api style quickly turned it into a must-have brand and its fame grew in France and abroad. With each collection, Pom d'Api reinvents itself and constantly rolls out original models, which makes it a go-to brand in the world of children's fashion and shoes. Their first store opened in Paris in 1980, followed by new addresses in the French provinces and overseas. Building on its rich heritage, the Pom d'Api brand continues to innovate today, bringing out new models every season which blend modernity, quality and creativity.
