Handmade Shoes - Page 12
Styleforum Top Picks
Purchased these in Zagreb and the store declared them handmade. They have been worn approximately 20 times and I have not polished them yet. Not sure what to polish them with, perhaps a clear or dark brown. Not knowing enough about leather or overall quality I can only say they are extremely comfortable but probably not as durable as AEs and the like.
Croatia has a number of good handmade cordwainers like Sukar. They are Blake though - not Goodyear - which illustrates the nearby Italian influence.
Can't you make something that is not ginormous ?
I know that bontivegna and norvegese are by definition 'bulky' but your shoes are super bulky, even the goodyears are crazy bulky
I am sure some people like the style but for me they are too loud, and without a strong designer brand name I would think it difficult to find a large enough market willing to part with a large sum for such loud shoes.
I know this will sound disrespectful but is not meant to be-. They look a little like clown shoes to me

that is a nice shoe but way overpriced.
I am always amazed at how much santoni fams like those go for. Given what else is on offer I wouldn't contemplate buying them for more than 50% of MSRP
Also I think they are on the wrong thread. From what he has in his online shop I think the only way pierigiacomi would ever consider those shoes would be to get a size 10 and a size 11 and then use a presser to get a 10.5 double sole, double upper, double everything
Exactly, and I think the soles are beautiful. Again, the leather that looks like it was skinned from a tyrannosaurus rex and the 2 tone design puts it a bit over the top for me.
These are really nice. Not yet up on your ecommerce site! Also, browsing through you photostream i see you also do women's shoes. Do you have any women's boot prototypes?
Best of luck with your small business buddy, although starting at $500 a pair.. I'm not sure how will you be able to compete with other iconic fatte a mano brands, offered almost at the same price range..
In this moment we have no time for woman shoes, but we have some prototypes, I think we restart "Woman shoes" in next year.
E-commerce site is not definitely, but we are working to complete it before Christmas.
Tomorrow I will go to Malaga for job and next week we can post another model of boot.

These are unique products, handcrafted by master shoemakers who passionately devote the same care every day and give equal attention to each of the amazing stages, from the creation of the wooden formers, the genesis of the article, continuing through to the polishing and thorough final inspection.
The manual cutting of the leather, the hand stitching, in different styles of footwear, the use of fine leathers even for the whole insole, the choice of the best materials (from rubber to cork, to three-dimensional and innovative synthetic mixtures, such as Vibram), together with time and knowledge of shapes, make each creation an excellent product.
