The American-born, European-handcrafted shoe brand, Quero opened a pop-up store on Madison Avenue. All of the company’s men’s and women’s shoes are handmade in Spain and the quality matches or surpasses what you would find at most Madison Avenue luxury stores but at a fraction of the price. Each style utilizes the highest quality leathers from France and Italy and all the shoes are hand-stitched with Blake, Bologna and Goodyear construction, not glued like other brands. The best part is that most styles range in price from just $165 to $255.
Quero is primarily a direct-to-consumer online store but having a physical space on Madison Avenue allows the company to meet with customers to ensure a perfect fit. The store will be open through the holiday season and it’s a great opportunity to touch, feel and explore the brand. If your size is out of stock, the company will have a pair made for no additional charge. If you want to personalize with your own pair from 31 types of leather and suedes and many soles and details. It’s only $50 over the base price. Not even Berluti offers that type of service on
