Riccardo Bestetti Ready To Wear Collection

It’s been a long time coming, but the day has finally arrived: Bestetti introduces his Ready-To-Wear collection at none other than the infamous Pitti Uomo. These pictures are obviously not from there, but are a few models to wet your beaks nonetheless and see what he is up to and what you can expect from his line. As you can see he very much keeps in tune with his bespoke footwear, offering models that have the mouth-quenching curves and lines that give resemblance to a handmade shoe. I assume (but am not sure) that he used lasts that were either identical (or very darn close) to his bespoke footwear. The only difference is that these beauties are going to be made with a Blake construction. But fret not, the Goodyear welted counterparts will be arriving in the near future… While I still believe these are in the production stages, having not quite yet been finalized nor sold to any stores, they will be coming out in the price range of around 400 Euros. While still not cheap (as they shouldn’t be), it now allows some of you dreamers (such as myself) to be able to finally get a piece of footwear that has been made/designed/influenced by none other than Mr. Bestetti himself… Will update when I receive more information…Enjoy!

    Very nice collection so far, especially the middle one. I hope he adds a whole-cut or monk strap as well.

    I own 2 pairs of Bestetti and it would be very nice to see them get more accessible and known to more people.

  • WdV – I am sure that there will be both of those. These were just a few of the models….I will post when I get the rest…
