Bontoni

Bontoni Shoes

The haberdasher Michael Jondral is continually searching for the best sartorial products worldwide. True to the motto "future needs origin" it is of course obvious that sartoriale greatness like Cesare Attolini, Finamore 1925  or Mackintosh, will always belong to the Jondral's product line.

From time to time, the product line will be expanded with further selected manufacturers. That is also why we are now presenting the unique shoes manufacturer Bontoni!

In the famous "Le Marche" region of Italy, more precisely in the small town of Montegranaro, one of the most exclusive shoe manufacturers in the world is located. As with so many of our beloved sartorial brandsBontoni is a family business which is run in the third generation.

Each day, Bontoni produces not more than 12 pairs of shoes. Thus it is probably obvious that a pair of shoes by Bontoni is an extraordinary shoe that is shaped by exclusivity.

Bontoni hand-made shoes combine traditional shoemaking and modern aspects like no other shoe manufacturer. 

Italian Shoes

Although haberdasher Michael Jondral already lists some of the most renowned sartorial brands in the world, there are still one or two with a rich history that deserves to be taken into the shop.

Without any doubt, the Bontoni shoe deserves the title "Italian Shoe". The mix of modern and classical elements is hard to find in other shoe brands in this class - at most with Santoni Limited Edition, but to a multiple of the price.

The factory manufactures shoes in different versions. Starting with the classic Goodyear welted construction, to Blake Rapid. But the very artfully Norvegese style is particularly noteworthy. With it you experience the great beauty and quality of Bontoni shoes par excellence - because as with the remaining steps of procedure, the Norvegese seams are naturally sewn by hand.

Exclusive Mens Shoes

The exclusivity of Bontoni shoes should be assessed not only by the 300 steps of procedure which are done by hand, not by the 100 stitches, but above all by the extraordinary quality of the leather.

The factory specializes in the selection and processing of only the best leathers worldwide! The leather is taken from the most prestigious tanneries and each centimeter is then carefully controlled. This process is practiced the same way it was done generations ago.

Herein lies the secret of the exclusive appearance and represents not only the base of the shoe, but ensures the specific nature of the product!

For this task, the company has special trained personnel - as it requires not only a trained eye, but also a long-standing knowledge that is passed on from generation to generation.

The customer will receive a pair of shoes without the need to make any compromises.

Handcrafted Shoes 

While the leather is the basis for each shoe, the "coloring" is used for the finishing process. We do not need to mention that even this step is done entirely by hand?

With Bontoni you get a patina that can fight a Rembrandt at anytime. The color palette of artistic creation is as inexhaustible as the possibilities of coloring itself.

The color palette features a mix of light and dark shades - hazelnut, chestnut, cocoa, red wine, of course, also black, to name a few.

Each pair is completely colored by hand and requires a three-hour applying & polishing.
Given the complex coloration, it is obvious that no pair of shoes is the same.
Discover the unique product in the product line of Michael Jondral and enjoy the timeless and elegant Italian lifestyle that it ultimately provides. 

You can choose from a selection of Boots, Loafers, Derbys or Double Monks. Each one meticulously manufactured and colored by precious hand in the Le Marche region of Bella Italia!
