These shoes are luxury for your feet

Sutor Mantellassi’s Made to Measure trunk show is the closest to bespoke you'll ever get.

They say, “Shoes make the man”. We're not entirely sure who “they” are, but they’re right. The quality of your shoes reveals how much you respect yourself. Which is why people judge you based on your shoes.

It’s time you controlled what your shoes say about you. If you haven’t already given your feet some much needed attention, you can start with driving down to Level Shoes at the Dubai Mall where Sutor Mantellassi, the Italian heritage brand with more than 100 years of experience in luxury shoemaking, has installed a little pop-up store since May 1 and will close down on May 14.

You may be wondering why we waited so long to tell you about a pop up store in a mall. It’s a big deal because from May 10-13, the pop up store will debut Sutor Mantellassi’s Made to Measure trunk show with one of the brand’s specialists at your service for appointments and consultations.

Just like you would do for a suit, the Made to Measure service involves having a shoe last made based on your foot measurements. With the brand’s specialist there to guide you through the process, Sutor Mantellassi makes sure there’s no room for error.

With the last made, you will be presented with a trial of the shoe. That’s where you perfect every aspect of your new pair. Once you’re happy with everything on offer, you get to instruct the specialist shoemaker on your preferences – in terms of leather and other design features –before your shoes go into production.

The experience though, doesn’t end there. When they’re ready, your handmade shoes will be delivered to you in a trunk that along with being designed to preserve the quality of your new shoes, will also feature a shoe care set and an ID document for your shoes. You know, in case you turn into a shoe snob and start celebrating shoe birthdays.
