& passion

Heritage and passion

The story of the Bopy brand began over 100 years ago, which was ignited by the passion of a man named Pierre Humeau. Ever since he was a young boy, he was interested in crafting shoes, and at 12 years old, his mother allowed him to work for the local shoemaker in his village. It was the beginning of his dream.

In 1905, he set up his first workshop, bringing together some 20 craftsmen, all passionate about making quality shoes. Strengthened by his childhood memories, Pierre Humeau devoted himself to putting on the youngest. From then on, Bopy became a regional reference for children which quickly spread to the whole of France.


The passion of Bopy today

What was at first the humble passion of a little boy, has evolved into a true know-how and a guarantee of quality and prestige. Bopy is considered to be the French trademark of specializing in children's footwear.

The passion that inspires the artisans is within the manufacturing of the shoes as there is utmost care and comfort within. The Bopy family now has more than 450 employees whose involvement is transmitted from generation to generation, who all feel joy in seeing a smile on a child's face. 

For the sake of quality control, Bopy is part of Groupe HB (Humeau Beaupréau). Initiator of the INNOSHOE charter, Groupe HB strives to establish standards of "rigour, reliability and quality" throughout the production cycle of its shoes.
