A Tale of a Bespoke Shoe
Through my long time association with Sutor Mantelassi shoes, I became friends with the very elegant Bill White. When Bill started a new venture with a very fine Italian cobbler, I took notice. When he told me that he could now make a Bespoke shoe, I took action. For all those gentleman who demand the fit, the quality, and the personalized style of custom clothing, until now the only option for their feet was to choose from a rather pitiable selection of footwear that was either somnambulant in style, or so fashion forward as to look dated next month.
Now with Scarpe di Bianco, men of taste can choose the perfect last, an exacting fit, and a choice of colors, styles, and leathers both smooth and pebbled, as well as exotics and suedes. Stains can be applied to truly accent the contours of the shoe, and a perfect and harmonious polish can complete the total look. Constructions run from the soft and flexible Blake to the sturdiest Goodyear or Norwegian welt construction. Styles range from the most supple unlined loafer to hale and hearty brogues to countrified Demi boots. Soles may be leather, rubber or a combination of the two.
Nowhere else in Raleigh, or indeed the Carolinas, do you have the choice of a custom shoe by Scarpe di Bianco. Any gentleman who demands a custom made wardrobe for his Bespoke lifestyle must surely indulge in a pair or three of these incredible handmade Italian shoes.
