For guys who don’t want to look like one of the fashion pack, Donald J Pliner is inviting them to put their own spin on its signature Dacio loafer.
The style, celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, can be produced in a range of novelty materials, stitching colors and outsoles that consumers can mix and match for a one-of-a-kind look.
To start the process, customers simply click online, where they can view the options, then visit one of the six Donald J Pliner stores around the country — in Houston, Las Vegas, Miami, New Orleans, Orlando, Fla., and San Jose, Calif. — to place their orders. The program is available through Sept. 15.
Material options include matte croco leather, hair calf with leather trim. Stitching colors add a fun pop and are available in tomato, royal, mandarin and natural, while outsole options include royal, ash and tomato.
To make the design venture even more personal, a shoe bag complete with customer initials come with each purchase. The Dacio retails for $325, with delivery slated for Dec. 1.
According to the company, a customizable women’s style may be added in the future.
