There are good shoes, there are great shoes and there are Bestetti shoes. There are many makers of high-quality goods in the world, and then there are a few that are as much artists as craftsmen. One of these great artigiani was Riccardo Bestetti, a shoemaker based in the small Lombard town of Vigevano. During the last few years, Riccardo became well-known amongst shoe aficionados worldwide as one of the world’s finest shoemakers, offering amazing fit, quality and unique designs.
At SPIGA 3, we offer a handpicked selection of Freccia Bestetti ready to wear, hand welted and made to the highest standards of craftsmanship. Each pair is handmade in the Vigevano atelier by the team that Riccardo trained during the years before he tragically passed away in 2016. Today, the company is run by his lifelong friend Marco, who works day and night to ensure that Riccardo's legacy is managed in the best way possible.
