BONTONI - ITALIAN HANDMADE SHOES - PERFECTION
Bontoni shoes are made following the long tradition of Italian shoemaking and are only reserved for a small group of people worldwide who appreciate the art of handmade shoes.
Shoes & Shirts is proud to be one of the very few retailers world wide to work with this small atelier which is known for its abiding dedication to the art of shoemaking. Each Bontoni shoe requires hundreds of hand-stitches. The craftsman also named Calzolaio completes 300 tasks. Then the master craftsman, only after a 25 days of "rest" of the upper leather, starts with the process of handstitching the welt.
The finest leather is selected to get a long lasting quality appearance and gives comfort to the shoes. The cutter of the leather inspects each millimeter of the hide on the slightest hint of imperfections. To make sure you get shoes existing of a beautiful consistent leather troughout the entire piece. Every pair is coloured entirely by hand and even the soles get as much as attention as was given to the upper of the shoe, call it perfection.
