Mario Bemer’s New Model

Last June I was in Florence visiting a factory for my upcoming trainer line and managed to stop by to say hello to my friend Mario Bemer as I try to always do when in June. I was unfortunately just missing Pitti Uomo which is what he was preparing for. A part of that preparation was the launch of his new model, as seen here. I took a picture of it (as was immediately in […]

Happy 4th of July!!

I know that this holiday is not for everyone out there but as I have not celebrated it in 7 years from being outside of the US, I felt it nice to simply give a small shout out to all of my fellow people who are enjoying this celebration no matter if you are American or just visiting.

Mario Bemer – Reinventing the Wheel and Doing it Well!

Mario Bemer has been really pushing the boundary of design with his young collection and it is quite refreshing to see. Nearly every model he does has something that is distinctly his and rarely do you see anything something so common that it has been done before. And I am really rooting for him as my appreciation for his help and kindness during my time with Stefano Bemer will never be forgotten. What’s even better […]

Mario Bemer Bespoke

The side profile of Mario Bemer’s bespoke shoes are always flawless in my eyes. Now when I say flawless normally I am talking about the making side but in Mario’s shoes, not only do I mean the making but mainly I am talking about the shoes pattern and details in absolute proportion. You see the Japanese makers will have flawless craftsmanship but the proportions to their shoes and patterns are not always there for me. […]

Mario Bemer in 2016

Mario Bemer has come a long way since the launch of his brand and what he started with. At first, he had one last, an idea and a space to project that idea. Since then, he has grown his last selection to 3, changed his production to handwelted only and continues to make an array of models that are different in good way. He is expanding the business now selling to a few select stores […]

Mario Bemer on the Rise!

Progression is a beautiful thing, no matter what field it is in. To see someone grow and create new and exciting things is one of the pleasures of life. And while I personally believe that we all have the ability to create in one capacity or another, it is obvious that some use that ability far more so than others. Before Mario Bemer ever joined the shoe industry, helping his late brother Stefano with growing […]

Mario Bemer – A New Start

For those that may not know, Stefano Bemer (the man) passed away about 2 years ago now. During the time that it occurred there was a lot of speculation as to what was going to happen with the company. About 6-8 months later, it was announced that the Stefano Bemer name had been purchased and that the company and shoes would live on. It was of course great news, as a name that was synonymous […]
