"I found my life’s satisfaction in shoe making.

The most important thing I’ve done in my life, apart from my family, is making, studying, inventing and creating shoes."

"Creating a shoe is an art but it isn’t like creating a work of art that finishes in a museum or on top of a piece of furniture. It is a work of art that has a very specific use and function: to be on the foot of a person who appreciates it, buys it and is happy to have it."
