Do you own a much-loved pair of shoes that are starting to look worn and scruffy? Have you been hunting for a pair of unique shoes, with a specific design or your initials?
Shoe lovers in Dubai are in for a treat, as we have discovered a shoemaker that will create a bespoke pair or copy a pair that you already own identically.
With a 15 years experience in the UAE, the company is not a novelty – but certainly very well hidden in Al Quoz. With a large selection of leathers to pick from – from Italy, India and France – the outlet (which has a shoe factory at the rear) reproduces children’s, women’s, and men’s shoes. It is also a popular place to head for Arabic thong slippers.
So what happens when you arrive? A mould of your feet with measurements is taken, which carries a one-off fee. The mould is then used to make the shoes.
The whole process (from the measurement to the shoe making) takes about 4 weeks. The production of each pair costs from 800 AED upwards. Uniqueness has its price – but it is definitely worth it…Near MARINA Home Interiors, Umm Suqueim Road (East) AL QUOZ Dubai For appointment: +97150 650 1028 +9714 340 40 76, +9714 3478441
