WOSE Shoes + Kai D.

Posted on March 04, 2014 by Kai D. Fan

WOSE (Working on Style Elements) was founded by Riccardo Gismondi.  He was born in Macerata, Italy, in the region of Marche, the most renowned hub of leather manufacturing and shoe making in Italy.  He inherited the art and passion for shoe-making from his grandfather, who spent all his life in a little workshop crafting handmade shoes.


Each pair of WOSE shoes are handcrafted by experienced shoemakers in Bologna, Italy.  The customer can choose from a variety of colors (black, fondente brown, chocolate brown, luggage brown, dark green, Bordeaux, and ocra) and a selection of classic styles (Countryman High, Countryman Low, Policeman, Officer, Norwegian High, Norwegian Low, etc.).   They are made to order with the option of adding initials in any position for the customer.


Kai D. will carry a complete size set which allows the customer to try them on before placing the order.  The leadtime for the made to order shoes is about 35 working days. 


WOSE shoes feature an original sole design which combines three layers of shaped leather and the ultra light weight EVA rubber sole material.  By mixing high quality materials, top-notch Italian craftsmanship and contemporary design, WOSE shoes can easily be worn in any occasion, all day and night, without losing maximum comfort.


You can now order your personal handmade WOSE shoes at Kai D.
