Rivolta, een Milanese schoenmaker uit 1883. Ten onder gegaan in de jaren zeventig van de vorige eeuw, maar in maart 2009 gereanimeerd door een telg van de Rivolta-familie.

Interessante werkwijze:

Citaat
Rivolta (...) applies (...) scanning technology but uses it to create a personal (plastic) last. That last is used by shoemakers to create bespoke, handmade shoes. No fittings, no paper measurements. Just bespoke shoes in 40 days, for around €1400.

Customers can pick from several different colours of leather, and between calf, suede, patent and cordovan. There is also a tumbled calf that the firm refers to as its English leather, and a waterproof suede. You can pick from Goodyear-welted, Blake or Norwegian (where the welt is sewn to the outside of the shoe).

There are several different styles, including two Oxfords, a Derby and a monk. The shape is quite classic and round – redolent to my eye of the Budapest shoe made famous by Vass. There is also a new last being introduced soon. The shoes are all hand-clicked, lasted and finished, with the welting done by machine.

Although still a little clunky, Rivolta also has a floor-to-ceiling computer screen that allows you to select your colour, model and leather, and see it transposed onto your feet.

Zelfs met een heuse configurator op de website.

1400 EUR voor bespoke in Italië is toch nog best wel aan de prijs of niet? En dan ook nog eens met van die high-tec apparatuur waar iedereen voorzichtig mee is.
