As the Mezlan factory continues to evolve and expand, so do the levels of skill and sophistication required in its footwear production. Antonio, the founder, maintains the status of master-shoemaker, a great honor. He is a revered chef in his own kitchen, slow-cooking without short-cuts. When he says that no less than 100 pairs of hands touch each pair of Mezlan shoes through its production, it is often many more than that. Each style is adorned with its own personality using creativity, balance, honed-skill and passion. This is the product which Antonio and the Mezlan factory bring to their customers. This is their legacy.
