“Perry Ercolino is one of the few shoemakers capable of crafting what is called a whole cut shoe – one produced from a single piece of leather cut into the shape of a shoe and stitched together with a single seam at the heel. Ercolino’s collection, made by hand in Pennsylvania and sold through custom tailor Franco Ercolé in New York, includes oxfords and wingtips with antique-looking finishes.

“The Perfect Pair” by Bruce Blackburn III – Nouveau Magazine, June 2001

“I slid my feet over the horn and into the wing tips, laced up, stood, and smiled as if I were beginning to levitate. They didn’t feel like shoes; they felt like my feet! I walked outside to test them on the sidewalk and began to laugh at myself…”They feel so good,” I said when I returned a moment later. “I’m scared to walk in them.””
“The Perfect Shoes” by Cal Fusman – Esquire, September 2000

“There are two sorts of pleasures in the world: the shared and the secret…The ultimate [secret pleasure] is the custom shoe. No other item…rivals the sheer intimacy of a shoe made just for you.”

“In the end, after the initiation of measurements, the ceremony of selection and the ritual of fittings, you will have a pair of shoes made by an artist. The fit will be a poem, and your feet will somehow look smaller, more elegant.”
