Custom shoes aren’t something a lot of men get to experience in their lifetime, usually due to the inherent exclusivity and high prices associated with stepping into a pair. However, if you have the means to pursue bespoke footwear, I highly suggest considering a pair of Italian shoes from Scarpe di Bianco. Handmade in a small fourth-generation shoemaking factory in Italy, these shoes will add an immeasurable degree of sophistication to your closet.
The fall Scarpe di Bianco collection contains a diverse variety of shoe styles. Each shoe is completely custom: you get to choose the leather and color, the construction, the burnishing, the last, and of course, the size. Customization like this doesn’t come cheap, as you should be prepared to spend an average of $1,000 per pair of shoes. However, I can guarantee that once you try them on, you’ll consider that money well spent.
You can view the collection at scarpedibianco.com, and you can go through the customization process and purchase a pair from Custom Luxe. If you happen to be in New York, you can also view the entire collection in their showroom located at 680 Broadway.
