About

Crispo Spero are hand-made Italian shoes made by brilliant artisans in Parabiago. (Home of Manolo Blahnik and Louboutin) The materials that we use to create our modern women shoes are all coming from Italy. We really wanted our brand to embody a modern woman and let her express herself through our creations. Crispo Spero is all about the feeling. We want women to feel confident and ready for an adventure in our funky shoes.

We set to make shoes for different type of women. Whether you are a professional, aspiring creative or a woman with good taste for shoes, nothing will make us happier than to see Crispo Spero being a part of your everyday life. We tried our best to create beautiful shoes with premium quality that also would be extremely comfortable. 

Our designs have modern twist with usage of best materials. This is our first collection and it consists of 10 models. We focused our efforts on design and quality to bring you these contemporary shoes and hope to start our journey with you.

The inspiration for this collection came from designers childhood. Aida Karakessova was born in Kazakhstan and while attending the school at that time she realized that the assortment of apparel/ accessories at that time was not very big. All of her classmates were wearing similar shoes, so her mother started to decorate her sandals with beads and pearls. Her mothers creativity continues to inspire her and gives strength to pursue her dreams.

Steve M. is a black suede evening pump that will be a beautiful addition to anyones shoe collection. It is very simple and elegant with signature pearl detailing on the back.

 

Marlon B. is made from green/white/blue/black kit. This pair is completely hand-made with braided detailing using same kid for the laces. It is our contemporary twist on a classic pump.

 

 

Clark G. is a pink/olive suede pump with grey python toe and detailing in the back. This funky upbeat shoe was the first one in the collection, therefore it set the mood for other creations. 

-You can order the without sewn beads on the back-

 

Gregory P. is a comfortable laser cut pair. Made of black/ grey suede with splash of color in the back. Chunky round heel makes your walks more pleasant. 

-You can order them without sewn beads on the back-

 

 

Robert R. is our "vampy" pump. Using suede and white python this shoe was created for a very confident woman that is not afraid to stand out and make an impression. 

 

 

Carry G. was made from olive/grey/pink kid with one of a kind heel. This shoe represents the innocent side of our collection. Wide heel makes this shoe very comfortable and steady. This pair was partly inspired by dancing ballroom shoes and carry the same mood. 

 

Paul N. is our very special pair. The process of making it takes the longest. Each bead (over 600) is hand sewn into the suede ankle to create this beautiful shoe. We hope it will find the lucky girl it belongs to.

 

Rock H. is a comfortable chunky heel pair. Made of black/ yellow suede with beads detailing in the back and python bracelet. It is this collections party shoe.

-You can order them without sewn beads on the back-

 

Randolph S. is our evening satin/lace pair with burgundy beads detail in the back. This pair is elegant and refined. We hope you will enjoy taking them on adventures with you.

-You can order them without sewn beads on the back-

 

James D. is made with grey/black/yellow suede. The funky hand-made yellow braid is a great detail to this pair.

 

 

 With the help of our Parabiago factory we sourced our leather from best Italian tanneries. We used natural leather for each pair with artisans following every step of the production to ensure quality. We used very vibrant colors for this collection that make great addition to anyones shoe closet. 

Our factory is located in Parabiago a Northern part of Italy. The city is famous for its artisans and shoemakers. In the 60s during Italian economic boom the little traditional shoemakers established middle and big shoe factories. Some of them are working to this day like our little factory. The team is not very big but everyone is a professional and knows from the early age the process of shoe creation. These artisans have been making shoes for generations and most of all they love what they do.

 From the very start our goal was to make everything the right way. Not to rush and deliver great product with modern design.

 We put together a talented group of people in order to create this brand and to deliver our product the best way possible. We are working currently on our next collection and hope you will stay with us through out our journey.

Our co-founder, Aida Karakessova, is a shoe designer, graduated in arts major. She has professionally studied footwear design in Milan and London. She is very passionate about shoes and wants to simply create beautiful accessories for women.

On the business end, Mereke Maralova, did graduate in economics and has been an integral part of successful startups. She is experienced in brand management and building a strong core foundation.

 Together with our Italian team we will try to innovate and move forward with our designs.

 

 Below is the timeline that we predict. The production window is usually between 60 to 90 days depending on a style and difficulty of the shoe. The latest your shoes will arrive is January. We have lots of things planned for next collection and will be happy to share it with you.

 

 Our shoes are true to size. When choosing your size, stick with your usual Italian dress shoe size. We will send you a survey at the end of the campaign to find out your exact size.

 All of you already know that sharing this project is the way for our dream to become reality. We ask you to let people know what we are trying to do and share our dream on social platforms. 

Tag us @crispospero, use #crispospero. At the end of the campaign we will randomly select one of you to send any pair of Crispo Spero shoes you like.

We are in need of your support and we will strive to deliver best product to you. We are the dreamers just like many of you.

 

Risks and challenges

There are some risks that can arise from a handmade production. However Crispo Spero is more than confident in its ability to produce a quality product in a curtain timeframe. We've done it before. Production and our Italian craftsmanship is something we emphasise the most on. We know our steps, now it is up to you to provide us with necessary tools to produce bigger and better. We have the manpower and we are ready from every angle to craft and to deliver the emerald box to your door.
