“Post-luxury” Italian shoe seller M.Gemi’s heart might be back in the old country, but its brand-new studio lies firmly in SoHo. Drop by to see the company’s mission—to sell high-quality, handmade shoes directly to consumers at prices billed as “fair, not inflated”—in action. You’ll chat with cofounders Maria Gangemi and Cheryl Kaplan about how they are redesigning the luxury-goods market. Then you’ll get to use the in-store tablet system to design a custom pair of the Felize (the brand’s moccasin with a cultlike following) all for yourself!
