Laurent was a Maître cordonnier.
The cordonnier, or shoemaker (a cordwainer in England), was a craftsman who manufactured shoes, boots, and other types of footwear. He knew how to create, with his own hands, the entire shoe from the sole to the upper. He was the cutter, fitter, designer, and polisher... Some shoemakers sold their shoes to merchants, but the majority sold their own shoes, either from their workshop or by going door-to-door selling their wares.
