Global Wealth Trade’s FERI DESIGNER LINES, the brand known for their luxury men’s time pieces which range upwards of $90,000, enters the men’s shoe market with their F/W 15 collection. This marks a milestone showcasing the company’s continuing expansion into new categories to service more markets. FERI rolls out its debut collection of luxury shoes for men framed against classic shapes and detailed with the brand’s signature touches and tastefully discreet logo hardware.
Made in Portugal and Italy, each pair is meticulously handcrafted by European artisans out of the highest grade hand brushed Italian leather and rigorously tested for superior comfort and durability. Colors skew towards the Fall season and the collection is proper for Business and Dress Casual, Cocktail, Black Tie and Creative Black Tie attire. The collection features dapper options for men from Longwing Balmoral’s with perforated details (and boasting one of the two style options with exotic skins), Ankle Boots, Slip-On Leather ‘Tasseled’ and ‘Penny’ loafers and Single Strap Boots and a Vintage Boot, each with its embossed or plated Feri logo, a standard gentlemen’s notch and custom imprinted soles. Inspired by the classical periods, each shoe is individually named, carrying such monikers as ‘Cielo’, ‘Leandro’, ‘Paulo’, ‘Gustavo’, ‘Dante’ and ‘Xavier’ to name a few.
According to creative director Sanaz Hooman, the collection is heavily inspired by travel, architecture, and the very lifestyles of the brand’s core customers. The collection comes in a variety of styles and colors. Prices for the shoe collection are $700 and up.
