Ten-Second Takeaway

Achilles’ Heel is a luxury shoe-making service that lets you customise a pair so that everything is just right – size, colour and style.

How Does It Work?

achillesheelAchilles’ Heel is India’s first DIY bespoke studio for men’s footwear. They have an online website that lets you fill out an application for your custom-made shoes.

It requires you to first choose the material – the two options are hide leather, which is procured from eco-friendly tanneries, and cotton-based vegan pleather {artificial leather}.

The application then asks you to choose the finish, style {Oxfords, Derby, slip-ons, loafers or ankle boots} and input in-depth data on your feet. The more data you provide, the better the fit, naturally.

Their online collection starts at INR 5,499 and the cost of customised shoes depends on the requirements. Achilles’ Heel is the brainchild of Nirali Ruparel and the brand’s clientele include Homi Adjania and Olympian Ian Thorpe.

So, We’re Thinking…
