What is different about Bondeno?
At Bondeno, we do not use cork or other materials to modify a pre-existing last, but rather carve a brand new last from scratch using the client's measurements taken with our high precision 3D scanner with a 0.5 mm deviation accuracy to arrive at a perfect fit.
Our 3D scanning technology and master Italian craftsmanship dating back to 1905 allows us to achieve this feat in 1 measurement session, saving on materials and time traditionally allocated to 2nd and 3rd fittings, allowing us to provide true bespoke Italian shoes at the price of ready-to-wear Italian shoes.

Measurement Taking for Last Making
Our measurement specialist in NYC will listen to what you have to say about your feet and take 45 different measurements and a sole imprint for each foot using our high precision 3D scanner. Then we send all the information to Italy to carve a set of personalized lasts from scratch. Our master shoemaker will then use the client's personal lasts to handcraft the final pair of shoes.
We Create Any Design You Want
If you can't find a model you like from our classic shoe collection, we can create any design you have in mind. Aside from the design, you may pick the toe shape, type of leather, color, sole and heel thickness, sole construction, number of eyelets, etc. You may communicate your design ideas to our bespoke specialist by phone, email, or when you have your measurements taken at our showroom.

EXTRA LARGE SIZE
For feet that are larger than 12.2 inches or 31 centimeters in length, we charge an additional $100 for the extra leather, extra wood used to carve the custom lasts, and extra cost of shipping due to the additional weight of the shoes.
Our single leather and double leather soles are made using the Blake stitch construction method. If you specifically would like a Goodyear welted construction, we are able to provide this service for an additional $100.
ORTHOTICS AND INSOLES
Although we don't make orthotics or insoles, we are able to take into consideration your orthotics and insoles while we take your foot measurements. This involves a one time fee of $100 for the measurement taking and last carving parts of the process.
