Viennese Shoemaker - Mr. Maftei

Mr. Maftei's tale is like a fairy tale taken from H. C. Andersen's book. He moved from Romania his home country after the changes ocurring in Eastern Europe by the late eighties (1988). He was in Hungary for a short time and then moved on to Vienna (Austria).

In Vienna whilst window peeping at the most venerable Viennese Bespoke Shoemaker's windows shop, Scheer Bespoke Boot & shoemakers. 
Mr. Maftei met Mr. Scheer himself, and the two gents had a brief conversation that drifted to shoemaking. From this shoe conversation, doors opened up........A tale...a fairy tale starts ......

Mr. Scheer took Mr. Maftei on trial onboard with his team of shoemakers. This was the start to a very happy ending story of a very talented bespoke shoemaker.  

Tribute to Mr. Maftei, with a unique and catching story, a tale of a very passionate bespoke shoemaker told in shoes.

Today Mr. Maftei runs his own bespoke shoe operation in Vienna.
