KICKS FROM DIOMANDE
You know those kick-ass leather brogues you see in the windows of Long Street boutiques? Most of them come from a man known as Diomande. Diomande creates handmade leather shoes that will be 100% unique to you. The custom Diomande experience starts off with him measuring and outlining your feet so the shoes are made to fit you perfectly. Then, you get to choose your leather, as well as the lining colour. The design of the shoe is up to you, whether you want a pair of bowling shoes or ankle boots or slip-on loafers. Alternatively, you can buy a pair of ready-to-wear shoes from Diomande.
