Four years ago, I laced up my first pair of Bondeno shoes.  Throughout the pandemic years, these shoes performed beautifully for countless miles of walking.  Wearing them today, they look and feel better than ever. Much respect due to the professional craftsman that designed and constructed these excellent shoes.

"I have never tried bespoke before so I booked a video call appointment 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."

"Thank you Charles, and the whole Bondeno team for the beautiful black, perfectly crafted calfskin dress shoes. It gives me great satisfaction to inform you of their top shelf status in my shoe closet."


Jim Egart

Seattle, Washington

"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 despite each of my feet being different sizes. I am glad they have solved this problem for me and I am pleased with the attentive service I received from Charles."

"Placed an order for a pair of bespoke shoes from Bondeno in New York. Charles, assisted me in the ordering process as I am stationed out of the US. After receiving the shoes in a timely manner, the workmanship is impeccable and the quality of leather, right up to the customer service offered as well as the shoe fit is great."

"I enjoyed the whole experience from the measurement process to the customization of my shoes. It has been about a month since I received them 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."


John Ason

Austin, Texas

"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 expected 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."


James Davis

Miami, Florida

"A friend recommended me to get a pair of custom made shoes from Bondeno. 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 standard 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."


John Oliver

"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."


Josh Fischer
