San Francisco has its well-known shopping corridors —Union Square, Fillmore, Valencia, Chestnut, and Sacramento— but those aren't the only places you can find a great pair of shoes. Over in the La Lengua Autonomous Zone, (that parcel of land between the Mission and Bernal), there's a new custom boot shop. Beneduci Shoemakers, which you may have spotted at one of the city's Urban Air Markets, now has a boot workshop and store at the corner of San Jose and 30th, Bernalwood reports.
Prices (online, at least) range between $275 and $925. The shop is open by appointment Tuesday and Wednesday, (email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 415-742-0005 to schedule a time). Regular store hours are Thursday through Saturday 11-7pm. The store is closed Sunday and Monday. Stop by, say hello, and get a pair of boots that will last a lifetime.
