Qüero Shoes Artisan-Made Custom Leather Shoe Pop-Up
Qüero Shoes, the NY-based brand of artisan, leather, high quality men’s and women’s shoes handcrafted in Spain and available at highly affordable prices (shoes run from $149-$255, due to its DTC model), launches an NYC pop-up at 485 Madison Avenue between 51st and 52nd streets, starting Monday, September 23rd, 2019, through Wednesday, January 15, 2020, open from 10 AM to 6 PM weekdays and 12-5 PM on weekends.
Boasting classic, versatile and sleek designs with a bold twist while emphasizing comfort first, Qüero’s curated assortment of shoes, loafers, sneakers and boots includes: Italian, French and Spanish calfskin leathers and suedes; anti-slip, lightweight rubber soles; Bologna and Blake constructions; breathable calfskin linings; and more.
The pop-up also offers made-to-order, customizable shoes at $300 and under, a serious steal for custom leather shoes, with 40 materials to choose from including 13 leather colors, 12 suedes and 6 patterned leathers, along with different sole options (all leather, all rubber, and mixed sole). Women's shoes can come with or without a heel and with brogue detailing. These MTO shoes take just 3-4 weeks to complete and are then shipped to the customer. The MTO option for men includes the added benefit of Goodyear welt construction, the “gold standard” for handmade shoes.
Qüero Shoes’ pricing is more than half of that of leather shoes of similar quality because the brand's founders, NYC-based Randy and Monica Shuken, partnered with Eugenio Saiz and Alvaro Sasi, two Spain-based entrepreneurs, to start the brand. They work directly with their factory in Almansa, Spain at every step, allowing the team to bypass normal industry middlemen and pass on savings to its customers.
