The story began inauspiciously as Mr. Bemer started out in the leather trade and later began repairing shoes in Greve in Chianti in the early 1980’s before moving to
Florence where he apprenticed with a traditional custom shoemaker for several years before opening his own workshop in 1987. His outlook on developing his trade was centered on “learning from mistakes” and adhering to time-honored tradition and technique. The production of an outstanding pair of bespoke shoes only can begin with the selection of the best leather and components. Beautiful leather skins are cut for the uppers, the leather skin for the soles and soaked in water for about twelve hours, then wrapped in paper and beaten on a stone with a hammer. This helps shape the leather’s resistance and pliability, which in the end increase the shoe’s comfort and longevity.
