  1. Hi Eduardo, an additional topic related to your post is the shift from smaller retailers to highly specialized stores because of the fierce webshop competition. Your example goes way beyond a “shoe shop”. It is a state of the art customized premium shoe experience.

It’s not for nothing that high-end crafts such as bespoke or made-to-measure tailoring and shirtmaking as well as mid-level ones such as autthentic and reasonably affordable foodstuffs and condiments are on the up. I would call it the need for demonstrable quality and authenticity, coupled with a touch or personalisation living side-by-side with mass production.
