#43 Made in Italy Vol.1

This is the inaugural post of my “Made in Italy” series.  I hope you’ll enjoy it.

Italy is renowned for its famous house such as Versace, Marni or D&G as well as the outstanding craftsmanship of its artisans, especially when it comes to footwear.

So I decide to focus this first post on a shoe brand called Diemme footwear. This company was founded in 1992 and is located in Onè di Fonte in Northeastern Italy.

According to their website, the area of Montebelluna (where Onè di Fonte is) manufactures over 50 % of the worldwide production of technical mountaineering boots and 75 % of the world’s ski boots.

I do not care about skying but I would wear their shoes anytime! They are distributed in 22 countries including the USA, notably in one of my favorite stores here, Need Supply in Richmond, Va, but also Scoop, Barneys and Mr Porter among others.

I already mentionned this brand in one of my post about (capsule) women tradeshow in Paris.

Please, behold!

#3 Fantasy shoe closet

I think we all have materialistic fantasies (no, you’re not above the masses).

As far as I’m concerned, shoes are a great part of them.

Check this selection out and tell me what your fantasy shoe closet looks like.
