Quero Shoes, a new company hailing from Spain, is launching its brand with its premier pop-up shop at Refinery Hotel’s rotating pop-up space Hatbox from May 19th- May 26th.
The Spanish brand works directly with customers to create custom-made shoes for men and women from expert artisans in Spain. Each customer can select the style, leather and sole, and then Quero tailors the size to fit each customer’s exact foot measurements. During the week-long pop-up, New Yorkers and visitors alike can stop by and design a new pair of shoes from 8 am – 8 pm on weekdays and 11 am – 8 pm on weekends. Styles for men and women range from business to casual to formal, and cost approximately $180 to $280 per pair.
Refinery Hotel is a former hat factory turned industrial chic boutique hotel in the heart of the Garment District, and continually supports emerging brands given its history in the fashion industry. Guests can access Hatbox through the hotel lobby or via the sidewalks entry next to the hotel’s formal entrance. Refinery Hotel (63 W. 38th Street, New York, NY, 10018)
