Benjamin Dietrich

"Buying bespoke via Bondeno was a very positive experience. We felt in good hands right from the start. The measuring process was professional and all our questions were answered thoroughly. The atmosphere was very friendly. The end result are great shoes at a fair price. Way to go!"

"I was attracted by the Italian craftsmanship and I ordered a pair of derbies in hand painted midnight blue. The shoes came out beautiful and the fit was spot on and very comfortable. Over the years, my biggest challenge was to find shoes with enough width in the forefoot and heel areas and also my left foot is larger than my right foot. When I first wore my pair of Bondeno shoes, I knew they carved each last individually because both shoes provided the same fit, instead of one shoe bigger than the other from when I buy off the rack. I am glad they have solved this problem for me and I am pleased with the attentive service I received from Charles."

"The quality of the leather, the workmanship, and the fit were all very good."

 

John Goer

"I had never tried bespoke before so I booked an appointment to visit their NYC showroom to see their shoes and learn about the measurement and shoemaking process. After learning about the measurement process, the custom last carving and the materials they use, I decided to give it a try since I have always felt discomfort due to my wider feet. The shoes were made beautifully and they are very comfortable to wear. I have ordered 4 pairs since 2017 and I haven't been able to find better quality and fit at a better price, so 5 starts it is for Bondeno and I am glad that I found them."

"I enjoyed the whole experience from the measurement process to the customization of my shoes. It has been about a month since I picked them up and the shoes are really comfortable to walk in."

"I always had a hard time finding shoes that fit me properly. The measurement process was a great experience and the shoes fit me very well. The only issue I had was that it took an extra week to receive them."

 

John Ason
New York, NY


"I have worked in men's fashion for the past 7 years and I have decent knowledge about suits and shoes. I wear a size 13 and I can't remember a time when the width of my shoes did not bother me or the top of my shoes didn't cause redness on my instep. After having worn my first pair of custom made shoes for 3 weeks, I find the calf leather very supple and comfortable to walk in. Regarding the fit, I was impressed by the measurement process. It was so detailed that I remember walking out of my measurement appointment expecting a perfect fitting shoe. Well, if there is such a thing as a perfect fitting shoe, then I guess this is it. 5 starts for Bondeno. Job well done."

"A friend recommended me to get a pair of custom made shoes. I have never worn custom made shoes before since my feet are pretty standard, but after trying my first pair, it is pretty amazing the difference from sized shoes. I have been wearing them for 3 months now and they feel so comfortable that I haven't been wearing my regular sized shoes. I am waiting for my next pair to arrive. I am very pleased with how the shoes look and how they fit me."

"I am very happy with how the custom made shoes fit me and with the quality of the shoes. Certainly the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever purchased."
