I will be in New York City at the Warwick Hotel (http://www.warwickhotelny.com/) working with clients from July 17th to July 20th. I will be wearing a few different hats, both wholesale and retail, so I encourage anyone interesting in meeting with me to send a note and we can exchange cell#’s, etc. My suite will be set up with RiderBoot as well as Martegani shoes…current as well as make-up samples. Obviously, I will provide custom fittings, take single pair special orders, show the new patterns I am expecting to stock for Fall, etc. More info to come.

Please send me a note if you are interested in seeing more of Martegani!


One of my real good clients here in Richmond ordered our Lucca pattern but added Navy Alligator trim to make it his own (and in a size 16!):

Lucca + Gator Navy

I am always tempted to bring some of our Ladies Line here……



Just a quick update on things…..I have started working again to recreate this blog in a more useful, and better organized, way.  We are almost finished editing our first true catalogue, and the stock situation has expanded to include lots of Exotic (Alligator, Teyus, Demos, etc.) options.  Thanks again for your patience, and please stay tuned!

There were so many make-up (non stock Martegani samples) patterns and outdated information published here, I have decided to take it down and start again…hopefully in a much more informative, and easy to navigate way.
