Bontoni is a third-generation Italian family company that produces a very exclusive line of bespoke and ready-made men's dress shoes. The company produces fewer than 12 pairs a day.[1] The company is renowned for its hand colored leathers and high level of hand craftsmanship. Bontoni's bottega, or workshop, is located in the Marche region of Italy.[2] It takes about twelve weeks to complete a pair of ready-made shoes and ten months for a custom pair. Bontoni's ready-made collection is available at a select number of exclusive clothiers throughout the world. Bontoni's U.S. retailers include Bergdorf Goodman, Wilkes Bashford, Neiman Marcus, Richard's, Mario's, Stanley Korshak as well as several others.
