Stefano Bemer Bespoke Shoes, Made In Italy

Italian Bespoke Shoes Made In Florence

There is nothing more specific and unique than a single human being. 

We all have our own sense of style, perception of comfort and, last but not least, sense of appreciation towards certain details and services. Furthermore, there is nothing more unique than the human foot.
Approximately 25% of all the human bones are located in the feet. In the course of a lifetime, a person will walk 115,000 miles on average - that is equivalent to walking around the earth four times. At the end of a day, a person places hundreds of tons of weight on their feet just from walking. Given the importance of our feet we take the fit of our shoes seriously. For this reason, we have developed different lines of our made in Italy products in order to meet all kinds of demands and expectations. If asked, we would normally say that our Ready-to-Wear and Made-to-Measure lines are 90% bespoke shoes with most custom desires met -- same materials, components, technique, option of customizations, packaging -- but that 10% means the world if you need it.

Sixpence Bespoke

Our bespoke shoes service is named Sixpence Bespoke, after the antique sixpence silver coin that we place in the shoe as a token of luck, according to an ancient Scottish tradition. It allows a full customization of each detail of the last and shoe and it comes with our signature fiddleback waist, that we call "the violin". Our Sixpence Bespoke service currently starts at 4700 USD, plus 700 USD for the preparation of the last (a one time fee for the creation of your specific last which can be used and modified for a lifetime at no extra charge).
