Super lush US Made +designed shoes, here is Frank of Beneduci.
Had a chance to chat with Frank briefly a couple of weeks ago. He is very passionate about the shoes he designs and what it means to have a good, well made pair of shoes, all of them are made in California. It was very nice meeting you Frankie!
Beneduci is having a weekend sale, per indicated on Firehouse8's FB page
And upon leaving, an accessories vendor just setting up:
