Di Fabrizio: Boot Maker to The Stars!
you enter his quaint little shop front on Fairfax Blvd. in West Hollywood, the
first thing you see is a wall of show boxes with famous names printed on the fronts.
Names like Elizabeth Taylor, Kirk Douglas, Raquel Welch, Sylvester Stallone, Lucille
Ball, Mel Gibson, Sharon Stone, Frank Sinatra and Elton John. These boxes contain
wooden lasts, copying the feet of each celebrity, from which Pasquale Di Fabrizio
has made his magic for over forty years! This humble Italian cobbler created the
famous monster boots for Gene Simmons of Kiss! He also made 34 identical pairs
of high-heeled, black-leather, front-lace knee boots for Michelle Pfeiffer and
her various stunt doubles when she portrayed the original big-screen cat woman!
Need we say more? Don't miss this chance to meet the man who has made some of
the most famous boots in the entertainment industry in our next issue of Bootlovers.Com!
