When he was born on March 21, 1974, he did not have his feet in his shoes, but he had the gift of making them without knowing it.
The young Tokam (his last name), under the stricture of his Bandjoun family (west of Cameroon) will make a formal academic journey, then leave his country at the edge of his adult life to continue his studies in a sector that he was passionate.
He is 22 when he arrives in Europe in 1996.
He will obtain a BTS in audiovisual maintenance, then follow a complementary training in these professions of telecommunication in perpetual change … but he will end up submitting to what is strongest in him!
He has a whole “geek”, but everything is art in him, because he can also draw and make clothes.
He was a craftsman since his tender youth, but would it have pleased his family if he had said it since his childhood?
In 2006, he’s been in Paris for 10 years … it was not easy to get there. He had to make great efforts to stay upright, but the most difficult thing is to succeed by doing what he wants!
He bravely decides to give up what he has studied to devote himself entirely to what he has loved and dreamed of doing in his life.
One thing is certain, he has talent, and he whispers by word of mouth or by “kongossa-positive” that he would have the right measure in his hands to make “tailor-made”!
It’s the rush … artists, top athletes, lawyers, bankers, technocrats, top executives and other “dandies” who want to have beautiful shoes
Stéphane To, the “lion” ???????? The indomitable shoe does a remarkable job because its challenge is to tame the feet of its most demanding customers with shoes made with extreme care.
Tell him what you want, he will satisfy your desires … be unashamed and show him your feet, he will know what to do for your comfort and pleasure.
By the quality of his work, his reputation continues to grow. It reaches palaces, palaces and velvet salons by moult relais!
He makes masterpieces for heads of state, but he always does for his ordinary clients qualities that he appreciates despite their modest scholarships. He knows that all portfolios do not contain gold, but his motto is to satisfy those who want to own his work.
In 2014, he decided to open a showcase in the 9th arrondissement of Paris, precisely at 5 rue Papillon, not far from Galeries Lafayette.
He makes clothes, accessories and shoes on the map, in addition to a feminine line accented on women who wear very large sizes.
It is the foot to have his feet signed Stéphane to ????????
