Mezlan Fall Catalog | Heritage
As the Mezlan factory continues to evolve and expand, so do the levels of skill and sophistication required in its footwear production. Antonio 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.
NOT MANY THINGS get better as you use them. Cars rust. iPhones crack. T-shirts get pit-stained. But not everything has to be on a slide to the garbage bin. Just consider Mezlan. We here at Promo Magazine are so much in love with the design and artistry of the shoes that are shown below. Every stitch has its own personality and character. I can see myself wearing these fabulous shoes to every event that I attend because that's how universal they are.
In 2008, Antonio launched the retail division of Mezlan by opening its first company-owned boutique in Las Vegas, Nevada at The Grand Canal Shoppes in the Venetian/Palazzo hotels. The store was met with international acclaim and would serve as a showcase for the brand, a place where customer service would be held to the highest standards in the business.
The company would go on to open five more Mezlan boutiques in exclusive shopping centers throughout the U.S.
- Phipps Plaza, Atlanta, GA
- 900 N. Michigan Shops, Chicago, IL
- Fashion Centre at Pentagon City, Arlington, VA
- The Galleria, Houston, TX
- Westfield Valley Fair, Santa Clara, CA.
A seventh flagship Mezlan boutique opened its doors at 520 Madison Avenue in New York City in February 2017. The store, from its flooring to its furnishings to its lighting, has been designed by Antonio and hand-built by Zora Mobiliario, S.L. in Antonio’s native Spain. Mezlan also launched a company website in 2008, www.Mezlan.com
