Aldo has expanded extensively since it was founded in 1972 by Aldo Bensadoun. The eponymous label is now an international success with over 200 million customers. Perhaps this is due to the founder's heritage: as the grandson of a cobbler and son of a merchant. Or it' simply because Aldo delivers premium footwear designed for a contemporary audience, offering up directional designs inspired by the traditional. Men's shoes include an ever-growing range of monk-strap shoes, delivering choice even within this one classic style.
