The Vatican's Papal Bespoke shoemaker

I have always wondered as where do the Popes and the Vatican clergy get their clothing or even so, their shoes. Now it so happen that the Papal bespoke shoes are made in Italy by Mr. Adriano Stefanelli of Novaro.

The Red colour for Papal shoes has been in use since the time of Honorius.

A moment long awaited for to present the Papal shoes to the owner.

Mr. Stefanelli has also produced shoes for the White House, for former USA President George W. Bush Jr and current US President Mr. B.Obama.
