When a customer orders 150 pairs of bespoke shoes, it’s probably safe to say he is a diehard fan. The Sultan of Brunei, one of the first supporters of Maison Corthay shoes, did just that.
It seems the Paris-based brand’s followers do not do things by halves: a customer in New York bought a pair of bespoke golf shoes for his golf club chums.
But for those who want their own pair here in the UAE, the luxury menswear collection is now available at Level Shoe District in Dubai Mall, the first outlet in the Middle East.
Prices start from Dh5,500 and go up to Dh47,000 for the Arca Crocodile style, which uses crocodile leather with only the largest scales.
The soles and lining are purple and the satin laces come in a contrasting colour. More info
