Riccardo Freccia Bestetti Trunk show at SPIGA 3

There are many craftsmen in the world, many extremely skilled in their labour. For those who reach a higher level still, with their work bordering or even becoming art, there is a more suitable term: Artisan. 

This word has become somewhat overused during the last couple of years, labeling every skilled worker as an artisan. Still, there are some examples of true artisans, or artigiani as they Italians say. Riccardo “Freccia” Bestetti is one of them.

The shoes that Riccardo make are nothing short of pieces of art, expertly handcrafted to the highest standards of craftsmanship and quality. The detailing and the distinctive and elegant lasts truly set a pair of Bestetti shoes apart from the competition.

We had the honour of Riccardo visiting us at SPIGA 3 during the first of March for an exclusive trunk show, were our customers had the opportunity to purchase bespoke, semi-bespoke and MTO shoes from the legend himself.

Wonderful shoes from the Bestetti Novecento line. They Novecento line are shoes that are made to bespoke standards, but instead of full bespoke Riccardo adjusts an existing last to accommodate the shape of your foot. You can order Bestetti Novecento via SPIGA 3.
