Diomande, your shoes make me want to dance on the ceiling.

December 4, 2012

Siegfried and Liesl mailed me yesterday to tell me about a gentlemen they met named Diomande, who is from the Ivory Coast and who hand crafts leather shoes using techniques learnt whilst in Brazil. Each pair of this man’s shoes is one of a kind and come with a lifetime guarantee and not only can one choose from his many beautifully designed pairs, but you can also take him a trace of your foot and a cutout from a magazine and he’ll create a custom shoe just for you.

Siegfried and Liesl assisted Diomande in putting together a site to try help him spread his wonderful work, which I think was really cool of them and I’m only more than happy to show some of his amazing handmade shoes here and point you in the direction of his new site where you can contact him if you are keen to buy a pair.

Nice one guys, you did good helping Diomande and Diomande, you make amazing looking shoes. Well done.
