Description

Unique made-to-measure shoes to match you and your personality.Berlin-born Saskia opened ten years ago her unique atelier-showroom in Florence, where examples of her handiwork hang like works of art from the walls. Her made-to-measure shoes are hand-constructed using English techniques (learned from her cobbler mentor, Germany's best, who worked in London), accented with Italian design. She makes shoes to order in her characteristic style according to your personal touches with an incredible range of material from kangaroo to alligator. All it takes is a visit to her atelier for a mold of your foot and you are on your way to your perfect shoe, skillfully handmade entirely in Saskia's atelier for a truly unique fashion statement. While she mostly makes men's shoes, she can also do women's although a masculine style pervades.

Description

Artisan mens shoes, beautifully hand made to measure.Take a step back in time, you don't often see this sort of workshop anymore. Roberto Ugolini patiently and carefully makes men's shoes in a small artisan workshop facing the characteristic blank and elegant church façade of Santo Spirito. The tiny studio is usually occupied by one or more of Ugolini's skilled Japanese apprentices and the back wall is lined with wooden shoe forms, a testament to the bespoke work offered by Ugolini – each client's personalised forms are always kept in the workshop so that reordering that extra pair of custom red crocodile skin shoes is easy. Styles are generally classic, think Humphrey Bogart and Frank Sinistra, but you can choose colour and leather styles to modernise and personalise your very own handmade footwear.

Description

Tailored, bespoke menswear: old world charm meets modern elegance.If you're looking for a place to have not only a made to measure, but a bespoke suit or jacket, this is the place to treat yourself. Fittingly, Liverano & Liverano is on via dei Fossi, the very street where tailors set up shop during Leonardo da Vinci's time. Even the store itself, classic and elegant as the clothing, takes you back to another time, especially the rooms housing the stacks of tweeds and other fabrics, where the fitting and tailoring take place. With the young and immaculately dressed Japanese store manager, Takahiro (himself an expert shoe maker), you are in good hands. You can also find ready to wear men's coats, sports jackets, ties, shoes, shirts and knits in Maestro Liverano's distinctive style. Each detail and seam is carefully handmade.
