About

We will reboot this project soon!

Click here to be the first to know when we do:

Introducing Max Lemari, the first luxury brand that lets you customize the finest hand-crafted shoes on Earth, right down to the finest detail.

Customization backers will be able to choose the model, leather, and colors of their shoes. There are 846 different combination possibilities, plus you can engrave your initials. This makes a total of 571896 options. It’s almost impossible that any two people will create the same pair…

Follow these five easy steps to design your unique pair of Max Lemari:

  • Choose your Model
  • Choose your Main Color
  • Choose your Stitching Color
  • Choose your Sole Color
  • Engrave your Initials (always optional)
         

FIVE THINGS THAT MAKE US SPECIAL:

  • Classic and Personalized. You can choose one of our “classic” shoes from our first collection or design your own “customized” pair to match your style.
  • Our Experience. Before founding Max Lemari, we worked for over 40 years with the most exclusive brands (Gucci, Armani and Dior). We know what we’re doing.
  • The Quality. This is the best quality Italy has to offer, maybe the best in the world. Hand constructed, hand stitched and hand painted, using the finest italian leather and the best craftsmanship.
  • The Price. Luxury drivers of this quality are valued at over 500€. Only Kickstarter backers will be able to receive a pair for 185€. Our shoes will never be this price again.
  • The Speed. We promise to be the quickest fashion kickstarter ever. From our factory to your doorstep within 30 days of our campaign ending.

AND IF YOU WANT, YOU CAN EVEN ENGRAVE YOUR INITIALS

Our classic collection is made up of four different models, each inspired by beautiful Italian Islands: “Ischia, Capri, Lipari and Ponza.” Suede was our first choice while developing this collection but we’ve also made loafers in Sporty Saffiano and Volanato.

This exclusive Cavallino collection is made with the finest and most expensive silk calf leather in Italy. The distinct patterns of the print will really make you stand out.

But don’t just take our word for it. We’ve been sending loafers to youtubers and influencers around the world. Listen what they have to say about our drivers:

Made in Italy is a way of life for us, not a tag you simply sew onto a product at the final stage. We are 100% Italian, we didn’t travel to Florence to learn about shoemaking. We’ve worked in the calzolaio business all of our lives, and we are obsessed with shoes!

Every part of each pair of shoes from Max Lemari comes from Italy. After 40 years of research and experience, our knowledge has led us to select the best materials in the world to produce our drivers.

Our mission is to be the fastest Kickstarter ever to deliver to your door. Our goal is to ship our first shoes 30 days after the end of our campaign. To achieve this, we need your help. Back our project and comment which model you’d like and what size. This allows us to begin production before our campaign ends.

SURVEY

This is your most important task! On June 24th, once the campaign is concluded, we will email you a link to our Kickstarter survey. It’s incredibly simple. You’ll click a few options to select your size and color choices. You’ll provide us with your address, so we know what to send to you and where. The quicker you submit your survey, the quicker you’ll be wearing your shoes!

Since we want to deliver to your door in record time, we’d love it if you could leave a comment with your favorite model and shoe size. With this information we can pre-order the leather and begin manufacturing once our goal is reached.

SIZING

Our shoes fit true to EUR standard sizing. It’s the same sizing used by the best luxury brands in the world. We’ve decided to use the European sizing system because it’s the most precise in the world. Each ½ number is only 3.5mm (0.13 inches) more than the full size. When choosing your size, stick with your usual elegant dress shoe size (not sneakers.) You can use the chart above to determine your size. We’ve converted each European number to the US and UK best fit.

Any doubts on your size? Leave a comment and we will help you to find the perfect fit.

We want our shoes to feel comfortable for everyone, so we also offer “D & E” widths.

DELIVERY

We’ve negotiated domestic and international shipping rates with carriers. We will only charge 15€ to US, UK, EU and Canadian customers. No extra rates will be added.

US & Canadian backers will not pay any duties. From March 10, 2016 a new commercial agreement was made with the EU: orders under 800$ value will be delivered directly to you duty free.

For the rest of the world, duties and local taxes will be charged by the appropriate authority at the destination country. Please determine these charges locally.

We are a startup and work with almost no margins on Kickstarter. If the need for an exchange arises, we will need to charge for the shipping both ways.

All exchange requests must be submitted within 30 days of receiving your reward.

Risks and challenges

Max Lemari was founded by a team with over 40 years of experience in the luxury footwear industry. We can promise you this: if you order it, you will receive it! Every backer will receive their reward...and quickly! We don’t make commitments that we can’t honor, and we have the infrastructure and knowledge to assure a smooth transition from your order date through to delivery.

Before founding Max Lemari, we worked with the biggest brands in the luxury world. One delay meant thousands of dollars in penalty. We will give our backers the same service and respect. We will work day and night to ship your shoes as soon as possible.

We are committed to shipping up to 1,000 pairs by July 25th and up to 500 customized drivers in the following two weeks. In the event our project is a huge success, and we exceed 1,500 pairs, our craftsmen are able to produce 250 pairs/ week. High quality needs time. We will not stop working until all of our backers have received their reward.

We want to create a long relationship with our backers by delivering high quality drivers and keeping you informed every step of the way. You will receive regular updates as we fund, produce and ship your drivers to you.

If you have any questions or doubts, talk to us. Get in touch by leaving a comment and we will reply as soon as possible.
