When it comes to children's footwear, one name often stands out: Bopy. This esteemed French brand, adored by children and trusted by parents alike, is now exclusively available in Singapore through Hopla! retail children's shoe stores and online. Bopy's story is one of relentless dedication, heritage, and passion, as we'll explore.
The Humble Beginnings
The Bopy brand was established more than a century ago, emerging from the passion of a young craftsman, Pierre Humeau. Aged just 12, Humeau discovered his love for hand-craft and entrepreneurship, guided by the village shoemaker's skilled hand. His fervour for shoemaking led to the establishment of his first workshop in 1905, where he assembled 20 artisans as passionate about quality footwear as he was. These beginnings marked Bopy's transformation from a regional reference for children's shoes into a beloved brand across France.
Bopy Today: Preserving Passion, Cultivating Craftsmanship
Bopy's enduring story is a testament to the values it holds dear - a reverence for manual shoemaking, unwavering commitment to comfort, and the joy of putting smiles on children and parents' faces. Over the years, the brand has grown significantly, now employing more than 250 devoted individuals. However, the Bopy family's essence remains, passed down from generation to generation, crafting footwear that delights and reassures.
As part of Groupe HB (Humeau Beaupréau), Bopy is an active participant in the INNOSHOE charter. This involvement reflects their dedication to rigorous quality control, guaranteeing the reliability and excellence of their shoes throughout the production cycle.
