Boys and Girls, I ''borrowed'' these beautiful images from the Lucky Pony blog. I just had to. MeMeMe has sold Diomonde shoes for years. Mohammad, a Congolese man behind the brand is based on Long Street in Cape Town and now that he has his own space, it's a matter of walk in and out and you get what you want but there's also a special range of Diomonde shoes available at MeMeMe Cape Town and MeMeMe Joburg.
How it works is that we custom make the shoe that you want. I have recently learnt that there's a difference between custom and bespoke. We don't design a shoe for each customer (bespoke) but if you like a certain style, you can choose one of various different leather swatches we have and we make the shoe to your exact foot shape (custom). This is a great gift for any loved one, especially your man. The shoes are made of 100% leather that is coloured so in the beginning they are hard as nails but after a few weeks, the leather softens and takes the shape of your foot. Delivery time is about 2 weeks from order date and in terms of price, you're looking in the ball park region of R1500 for a pair. If you want to go to Mohammad directly, he's in that African market arcade on Long Street near the corner of Long and Church next to that little Ethiopian spaza shop. Or you can always visit Mememe. Call 021 424 001 for in Cape Town and 011 447 1497 for Joburg.
