If you follow Men’s Style Pro on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook, you have seen the many hints of working with the online custom shoe maker Mantorii. Before releasing our officially collaboration (click HERE for the sneak peek), we wanted to review the brand so that you have better insight into what they do.

Who

How Does It Work

  • Visit Mantorii.com. Before selecting your shoes, measure your feet by follow the instructions listed HERE.
  • Select you shoe details. You are able to choose your leathers, broguing, style (Oxford, Boots, loafers, derby or single monk).
  • You’ll have your choice of the type of sole including the type of leathering or rubber you may want. All shoes are handmade with Goodyear welt soles (which makes the easy to resole).
  • There is a PDF that you will need to download with other measurement instructions to outline the shape of you foot and scan back. These measurement will ensure that the shoes are customized to your feet.
  • After you load up all your info and select your shoe style and leather, you can submit your order.
  • In 4 weeks you will have custom shoes at your door (shipping is free).

Men’s Style Pro Opinion Of Mantorii Custom Footwear

Speaking with the least amount of bias, Mantorii really impressed me with two things. The high level of customer service is almost unmatched. If ever you need to contact them via email or a social media network, someone is  always available to answer your request. In terms of their shoes, the quality really knocksit out of the park. Over the past 3 months, Mantorii has expanded their leather selection and shoe styles rapidly and without skipping a beat.

Shoe Review

The particular pair that I have styled in the 3 looks below are custom, single monkstrap and nubuck leather. Nubuck itself is similar to suede, however; nubuck is created by sanding leather to lift the nap texture out. One of the great features about nubuck shoes is that napped texture, it makes pairing them with casual pieces like jeans extremely easy. Since a part of the Mantorii process is providing your custom foot measurements plus a scan outline of your feet (with socks on), the outcome is a fit that is spot on. In the fields of quality (material & construction), fit and wearability these shoes meet A standards.

Style Tips

Wear the hell out of these shoes! This style of shoe is perfect for the casual guy that likes to dress up occasionally and is still refined enough for any suit in your wardrobe. These shoes are appropriate for all seasons, but be sure to spray them with a suede/nubuck protector to defend against dirt and water. You will see that the color pairs well with everything from light trousers to dark  denim.There are unlimited styling options with these shoes.

    Sabir, perhaps this isn’t the right place/post to ask you this, but what is your opinion (if any) on Frank & Oak shirting? I bought a dress shirt from F & O and after one wash, I am a bit worried about the quality. The shirt easily “crumples”, specifically where the arm bends and I am a bit worried the price-to-quality ratio was in fact too good to be true. Am I wrong here? Any opinion would be helpful.

    ps – the shoes look great!!

      Hi PZerek,

      I have two shirts that bounced back well from washing. They may have changed mills from where they source their fabrics. Glad you like the shoes too.

      Best,

    Great looking shoes. Big fan of the second series pics even with no jacket. Also that topcoat is money.

      Hi Justin,

      Thanks for dropping by. I am to hear that you dig the shoes. That topcoat is my favorite outerwear piece.

      Best,

    I never thought I cared for monk straps, but this pair, especially with the winter whites and the camel coat, is making me change my mind. Outstanding.

      Hi GR,

      It’s nice to hear that this feature made an impression on you and your potential new appreciation for monks. Tomorrow, I’ll have an even bigger surprise!

      Best,

    I’m pretty sure I will be taking the plunge on a new pair of half brogue oxfords in either Light Tan or Topaz Tan from Mantorii . This is my first visit to this site blog and who would have thought I’d be buying a pair of shoes at the same time. Cheers!

    The shoes look great. I am a huge fan of double-monk strap shoes. I have to order a custom pair soon.
