We at Moda Ninja have a love affair with everything handcrafted. Especially when the object of romance is a shoe, we never hesitate to show our support. (Remember this post?)
I don’t say this lightly, if a well made shoe makes you swoon, consider this your first and last warning! Michael Grey Footwear will make you feel giddy with love!
Founder and Designer Michael Mack’s Brooklyn barber shop inspired collection is to look out for. From the finest quality leather available in the United States to handcrafting them at his work shop in Brooklyn, these shoes have the mark of a luxury footwear label.
I tried on their Benchmade Bellissima Oxfords and the first thing I noticed was how snugly they fit. Being an avid brogue & oxford collector, what I did not expect was arch support. This made the shoe one of the most comfortable pair I have ever put on. The signature detailing on the sole is another reason that makes these shoes luxurious.
Considering the attention to detail, quality of leather and being handcrafted in the USA, these shoes won’t be light on your pocket, but will definitely be a worthy investment in your shoe-robe.
If you are looking for something that makes you stand out from the crowd, yet appeases to your love for timeless, elegant & classic pieces Michael Grey Footwear is the designer to turn to.
His collection was a part of an artisan festival at Macy’s and I had a chance to do a mini shoot on my phone! Don’t forget to give his website and IG gallery a look.
