Bespoke, it's all for you

I love having something made especially for me. Rocco, an Italian with a passion for all kinds of leather, has a shop in Malvern (43 Station St, Malvern, Melbourne, Australia) that has been catering to rock and roll types for probably longer than I've been alive.

I had a pair made specifically to my tastes and the shape of my foot. Here are the results

$170 will get you a pair of bespoke shoes, or $150 for a pair of the shelf. There are A LOT of pairs on the shelf, and not just shoes, but boots with round or pointy toes. Go get yourself a pair of originals.
Rocco's doesn't have a phone, they are open 10-5 during the week and 9-12.30 on Saturday.
