If the shoe fits, then it’s perfectly wearable; if the shoe fits like Tom Ford’s made-to-measure footwear, then it’s nigh-on perfect. Customers can select from any one of 18 styles – from lace-ups to loafers – and an almost bewildering number of materials (14 different kinds of calf leather, not to mention suede and crocodile skin). Still not individual enough? Then add a monogram or have your moniker inscribed inside the shoe. Measuring complete, the order hotfoots its way to Naples to begin a painstaking three-month process that gives the shoe-to-be (and presumably the shoemaker) time to rest between each of the six layers of polish. Alas, the service is currently only available in Ford’s flagship stores in New York and Milan, but then that hardly takes the shine off.
