Antonio Pio Mele
Bespoke Shoemaker, Milano
Bespoke Spade Sole, Spectator, Penny Loafer, #556
The scion of a Milanese family of traditional shoemakers, Sig. Mele began in the trade at age 17. Still a young man today, he eschews such titles as designer or stylist, preferring to refer to himself as nothing less than a bespoke shoemaker. Mele’s production is miniscule and, understandably, his ultra-refined clientele do not often dispose of their Mele shoes. They are therefore not to be found on the after-market; this is an extreme rarity and, it need not be said, a masterwork of great beauty, as much a sculpture as an article of footwear. Please notice the slim waist and spade sole
