If you like your footwear clean, simple and attractive, then Polyforma deserve a look in. Born in Berlin, Polyforma is a newly formed, online-only fashion brand, starting its career with a sleek, six-strong range of handmade, casual shoes for men. Created in its Italian workshop using vegetable tanned vaquetta leather, each shoe is individually hand-dyed to increase “character and longevity”, maturing over time. Polyforma prides itself on using its online platform to cut-out the middle man and sell directly to its customers, “No middlemen, no physical stores, no expensive traditional marketing and no huge markups.” Prices for the shoes range between £160 to £185. At first glance this may seem a little steep but once you consider that each pair is made to order (your European shoe size and heel-to-toe-measures are taken before check out), this is a very reasonable price to pay for a luxury that would ordinarily cost far more.
