The brand Free Lance was founded in 1980 and the collection has been designed since by Guy and Yvon Rautureau, who are the 4th generation bootmakers since 1870. Free Lance shoes and boots are made in a traditional way with very special materials in their own factory which is located in La Gaubretiere in France. The philosophy of the brand Free Lance is to create shoes that are not just fashion items but artifacts of wearable art. Free Lance proposes high fashion shoes and boots mixed with rock n' roll elements and is designed for independent free-inspired women. Very famous since years are the Biker boots from Free Lance.
