BOSS brings the art of precision down to your feet
The menswear doyen introduces footwear and belts to its made-to-measure offering

The tailored-for-you suit has had its fair share of publicity, but often playing second fiddle to the hero of a gent's wardrobe is the footwear he crowns his attire with. Just as the supremacy of a Lamborghini diminishes if you replace its V12 engine with a garden variety machine, the merits of a well-cut suit significantly dips without a superb pair of shoes. The next time you consider settling for a pair of derbies in half a size too large, bear in mind that shoes maketh the man — and a man should never settle.

Such is the spirit of BOSS' made-to-measure service that has expanded to include footwear. Beginning with measurements using a 3D foot scanner for optimum accuracy, the brand's craftsmen then create a last based on these dimensions before going on to fashion the shoe out of hand-dyed Italian leather.

Paying unparalled attention to detail sees BOSS swapping out the cork inlay commonly used in footwear for leather — the softer, flexible material abolishes the dreaded break-in process  — and introducing the 'Gentleman's Corner', a cut-out purposefully placed on the shoe's heel to prevent trousers from snagging.

As a gent knows to pair his belt to his shoes, BOSS made-to-measure brings hand-painted belts into the mix with the intention of matching the accessory to the exact shade of your shoes, crafted to fasten through the third hole for a smart, clean finish.
