Royer has donated 2,600 models of Charles Jourdan and Stéphane Kélian shoes to the International Shoe Museum in Romans. Visitors will have a chance to see part of these new acquisitions in the chapel of the French museum until the end of September. Founded in 1971, the museum houses shoes from five continents that cover 4,000 years of history. The Royer group, based in Fougères in Brittany, licenses a wide portfolio of brands, including New Balance, Converse and Hello Kitty, in addition to distributing its own brands, which include Kickers, Aster and Mod8. The group acquired the Stéphane Kélian and Charles Jourdan brands in 2008 but then decided last year to sell them.
