Bespoke Services by Measurement at our NYC Showroom
If your first pair of shoes don't fit you exactly the way you want, we’ll remake them—free of charge.
Our exhaustive and detailed measurement process allows us to avoid crafting a pair of trial shoes, letting us directly craft the final pair of shoes.
We also offer a free lifetime shoe-last modification program. As we grow older, our feet continue to widen and our arches start to fall. This service allows for each new shoe order to fit you as well as the last, taking into account your latest foot changes.
The most important aspect of any custom shoe is its fit. Two steps are critical to ensure the right fit. The first step is the ability to take accurate measurements. The second step is the ability to sculpt shoe lasts that are biomechanically accurate as well as comfortable from those measurements. This can only be done by a skilled and seasoned last maker.
Bondeno is a pioneer in last making tecniques. Once measurements are taken, they need to be translated into a shoe last. Each client receives their own unique set of lasts. No two lasts are the same. “Made-to-Measure” shoemakers will use a stock numbered last and make slight modifications to try and match the measurements and shape of the foot. This is not true custom. A true bespoke custom last is sculpted from scratch, from a block of wood, and this is how Bondeno has approached last making from the beginning.
