Viennese bespoke shoemaker, Maftei, will be visiting NYC in January to take orders for bespoke shoes. Details below:
Time: 15:00 pm- 20:00 p.m.
Yes, I have used them before and found them to be excellent. Very accommodating, with a real emphasis on fit.
The styling is also very proper and traditional - not dowdy at all, but if you're going in there to get something similar to G&G or Scafora, you'll walk away disappointed.
Visited the Maftei trunk show yesterday, despite the weather in NYC. Roxana couldn't have been nicer to someone who came in not wanting shoes right now. There were a lot more shoes there than I expected. They had just started making wholecuts and she had a few of them prominently displayed. From an admitted novice point of view the construction of the shoes seems first rate. I can't tell you if there is any structural, or wearing issue with pegged construction but those soles sure look good pegged.
I ended up getting my feet measured and will hopefully order something in the Spring after this atrocious weather is finished. Sorry I didn't take any pictures, I think my brain was a bit frozen.
