Fodor's Review

Norman Vilalta was a lawyer in Buenos Aires before he decided to move to Florence, Italy, and do something rather unusual: learn the trade of a traditional cobbler. Today he is one of a handful of people in the world who produce artisanal bespoke shoes, which take three months to produce, come complete with a video showing the entire making of, and will set you back somewhere between €2,500 and €5,000. However, you will also join the ranks of the chef Ferran Adrià, the architect Oscar Tusquets and members of the Spanish royal family as owner of a pair of Norman Vilalta shoes. And since they fit like no other and last a lifetime, you might consider it a worthy investment. For a less than eye-watering option, Vilalta's ready-to-wear footwear is available at the high-fashion emporium Santa Eulalía on the Passeig de Gràcia.
