Our Story

Bondeno is a family owned bespoke shoe company founded in Florence, Italy, in July of 2015. 

Our bespoke shoes and boots are crafted by our generational shoemakers in Italy since 1908. 

In 2017, Bondeno moved its headquarters and marketing operations to New York and opened its first showroom in Midtown Manhattan.

While our physical showroom in New York City is closed since March of 2020, we’re opening up our virtual doors to help you.


The ''Handmade'' Standard

Our handmade shoes crafted in our small family workshop in Italy carry traits that are not found in shoes made in factory assembly lines. When Picasso draws a perfect circle by hand we know it could never be as perfect as one drawn using a compass, but just like some people will still prefer the one by Picasso, to this day many prefer handmade shoes because they provide the quality and elegance that machines cannot replicate. Our shoes are hand-welted, hand-lasted and hand-soled. 

Painted Like a Work of Art

 When it comes to colors, we offer a choice between our solid colors, or our traditional hand-painted patinas. Our patina colors are applied by hand, so the colors on each pair of shoes will vary slightly each time. Hand-painted colors gradually change over time and develop into beautiful patinas, whereas solid colors on calf leathers dyed at the tannery will keep the same color overtime.
