SHOETIME @ Lunchtime  with Bionda Castana

A Custom Made shoe design service launched earlier this year. Featuring classically designed shapes with an emphasis on rich fabrics, comfort and exceptional Italian craftsmanship, each Bionda Castana shoe exudes a timeless luxury.

A service which was, until recently, only known to the most loyal of Bionda Castana fans is now available to all. Select your favourite patterns, fabrics and hues from the archives of the London studio to create your very own, one off pair of shoes. These will be hand made in Milan and arrive to you within four weeks. Enclosed with your shoes will be original sketches and a hand written note from the designers.

As with every Bionda Castana shoe, the emphasis is on classic design, and exceptional craftsmanship with a distinctive youthfulness and fun aesthetic.

Each shoe is designed in London and handmade in Italy – a perfect blend of London cool and Italian expertise.

Size run is from size EU 34 – EU 42 including half sizes.

Priced from 395 GBP
