On Tuesday, Mezlan, the Spanish branded high quality men’s footwear and accessories line, opened up its seventh United States boutique in New York City. Located in the iconic Jefferies Building, between 53rd and 54th streets, the shop is more than a mere store, its an experience. Walking into the store you will feel in awe, but also comfortable.
Mezlan, owner and designer, Antonio Sanchez, hand selects every element. Every element is produced in Spain and installed with the aid of Spanish artisans to represent the pinnacle of old world craftsmanship.
At the grand opening event, we spoke with Store Manager, John Benscoter, who said “In addition to providing shoes, when people come in [the store], we can educate people on how to make their shoes last”. As everyone knows, New Yorkers walk and walk all the time. He believes you should always have Ceder Shoe Trees in your shoes and never wear the same shoe two days in a row because your feet perspires and it takes two days for the shoe to dry.
