Pope's personal cobbler?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Supposedly when you buy a Pagani you get a pair of bespoke driving shoes made by the Pope's personal cobbler... anyone know what shop that is?

The Pope had custom shoes made for him in white by Dr Martens. I don't know who he has for driving shoes though.

Moreschi. Also, they produce the red one piece slip-ons for the Cardinals and the Pope as well. As well as hiking boots in the Norwegian construction - with red laces and trim. BTW, what's a Pagani?

It's a really expensive Italian car, kinda like a Lamborghini.

Well, that's a rather quick and vague description of the wonderful car made by my fellow expatriate. http://www.paganiautomobili.it/ Jon.

Yeah, I was on the way out the door and gave a quick and dirty response.

The Zonda is great. Very few in Europe. Even fewer in the U.S.

I had one in Gran Turismo. Nice, but not really for me.

haha Some buyers have made... interesting choices. I have seen yellow with tan ostrich leather interior. And you thought ostrich shoes were pushing the envelope... But, they are mostly stunning. I have seen one unpainted in bare carbon fibre.

The pope also uses Artioli as his cobbler.

Many manufacturers 'present' the Pope with shoes, usually on St. Crispin's Day; including Allen Edmonds from here. Unfortunately, they then commercialize it. The official 'Court' shoes, however, are Moreschi production.

Been watching Top Gear? The wonderful thing about a Pagani, is that it is a truly bespoke car.  They are built for the client, who can not only specify the interior, but the performance features as well.   My personal tastes would run more toward this "Monza" version rather than the previously mentioned ostrich leather trimmed example: Full roll cage, 5 point seat belts, fuel cell, more horsepower, vented wheel wells to cool the brakes, Sparco seats, fire suppression.  What more could you want? I just hope the Pope's cobbler knows how to put a Nomex liner in those fancy shoes.

oh, Kai, the ostrich was gross. I have also seen it on Mike Tyson's 512M convertible conversion (which he also put twin turbos in) (it's now for sale and will probably be bought by a buddy of mine who, thanfully, will rip out this interior):
