No sordid innuendoes on this blog! This post isn't in-reference to balls and testicles (cockney rhyming) but shoes, not just any old shoes - shoes that even the quality conscious M&S would be proud of. On a serious note, with mass production spreading like an epidemic it has enabled the high street retailer to offer a mammoth selection of footwear (that quite frankly are a sight for soar eyes) at bargain prices (being a stereotypical jew - Im not complaining). However, those cheap and nasty's are putting a squeeze on the very art that is cobbling. Yup, the days where shoes are made to order are few and far between but we can and will invest in the small number of specialists, whom take pride in their art and use very the best leathers and fabrics in doing so. The brand you ask? Officine Creative... Lets stand and they will deliver hand made shoes made by Giuseppe himself (Ok maybe not a Giuseppe, but they guarantee it will be a gentleman of Italian origin)
