Bondeno is the first, and as far as we know, the only company in the world that since 2015, crafts custom shoes through reverse engineering using a custom built medical grade three-dimensional laser scanner that obtains precise data from the inside of your most comfortable pair of shoes. Our last makers in Italy use this information to sculpt a pair of custom wooden bespoke lasts before turning them over to our Italian shoemakers to craft your shoes in the style and color that you have chosen.
If you do not happen to have a pair of comfortable shoes, you may visit our showroom in New York City to view our classic shoe collection and have your measurements taken, first by hand by our measurement specialist, and then by using our medical grade three-dimensional laser foot scanner.
We know how many pairs of shoes on average a man needs to buy before he finds a comfortable pair of shoes. We hope our reverse engineering services will make things a little easier and less time consuming in this specific area of your life.
Our starting price of $770 includes the use of A-Grade French full-grain calf tanned by Hermès in the South of France. We also offer exotic leathers upon request.
You may have us recreate the design of your shoes or request a completely new design.
Insured shipping label for your shoes to our New York City MetLife Building showroom, or drop-off.
Insured return shipping 10 days after we receive your shoes.
Shoemaking: 6 to 8 weeks.
Once your new shoes are crafted, we will ship them directly to your home or office.
Our reverse engineering services are offered in the U.S. & Canada only.
Our shoe recreation service enjoys all the benefits of our bespoke shoemaking in that a pair of custom wooden lasts will be custom carved from scratch from a block of wood using the exact dimensions of your shoes. You may request small adjustments to your personal lasts if your best fitting pair of shoes need small improvements in fit.
