Part brogue, part sports shoe, part espadrille. First introduced by Prada at the Men’s Spring/Summer 2011 show, the now-iconic brogues have since been adapted for women and copied to death by countless other brands. But as a true Prada fan would know, nothing quite cuts it like the original.
Prada adds a bespoke twist to this highly sought after style with its new Made-To-Order Micro Soles Shoes Collection. Available in Singapore for a limited time only, the exclusive service offers customers the opportunity to create their very own pair of customised brogues in brushed calfskin, crocodile or python.
Each model can be made in 32 different colour combinations, either in single shades like cobalt blue, scarlet, mango or white, or in one of the two-tone combinations like scarlet and black, or mercury and white. Micro soles available in five different colours complete the colour palate. For a truly personal touch, customers can have their initials embossed in gold on the soles of their customised pair.
Envisioned for women, the Made-To-Order Micro Soles Shoes Collection offers every stylish Prada brogue-sporting gent the opportunity to indulge the woman (or women) in his life with a matching pair and share his love for the Prada icon. With an estimated waiting time of 60 days, the customised Prada Micro Soles will arrive in time for Christmas – perfect for your stylish couple debut this festive season!
Now, we know what is on the mind of every fashionisto reading this post. Do the men get it? Well, kind of. While the customisation service is currently only offered for women, the sizes run up to 45. And from what we’ve seen, gents will hardly have a problem slipping on one of these exquisite kicks in the bigger sizes. In fact, you might be seeing us folks from the Men’s Folio team in a pair (or two) very soon!
The made-to-order service, offered only in select Prada stores worldwide, is available at Prada Paragon from 1 to 15 October 2014, and Prada Ion from 16 to 31 October 2014.
