Vancouver-based entrepreneur, Gaurav Mehra has launched a new luxury men’s footwear retailer that operates both online as well as offers personal one-on-one visits. Called Mehra, the new boutique launched last month, featuring brands otherwise not available in Western Canada but known worldwide as being some of the best shoemakers.
Brands carried at Mehra include Corthay, Enzo Bonafè, Gaziano & Girling, Stefano Bemer and Vass. Prices start at $695 and can go into the thousands. Mehra only carries ‘shoe specialist’ brands — being those that only make shoes and have their own factories, with no outsourcing. All shoes offered are made with Goodyear Welted or Hand Welted construction — considered the finest methods of shoemaking. The five brands carried also feature made-to-order options, where styles can be customized, including leather, colour and soles.
