The art of making beautiful, hand made leather shoes does not only exist in Milan (Italy).
Let me introduce to you, the little shoemaker.
With over 70 years experience Milan still has the talent, patience and skill to make these handcrafted shoes.
With less of a demand from the general public, ‘Opinci’ are still used today by traditional folk dancing groups all over the world.
Milan the Opinčar is an institution in Ohrid Macedonia, with many tourists buying his handmade leather Opinci as beautiful souvenirs.
Head down to the “korzo” and buy yourself a piece of history before Milan retires!
