“My Novecento Line is a shoe that is made to the level a bespoke shoe. It is handwelted and using bespoke grade leathers.  The finishing and detailing is the same as I make on my bespoke shoes. The only difference is that these shoes are made on a ‘standard’ last, such as the English style pictured above, or Perfetta, etc.  The shoe can be personalised in the choice of leathers, soles, and upper designs.” - frecciabestetti
