After 48 years in the shoe business, the Charles David president and CEO has a renewed faith in the visibility of European manufacturing, while still maintaining an affordable price point. This spring, the company put in motion a soft launch of Malka’s vision for the future: the Made in Italy collection of classic women’s styles, such as riding boots and oxfords in distressed leathers, priced at $230 to $500. The line has proven so successful that Malka has rolled out additional shoes ahead of the global launch this fall. And in the coming months, the company also will debut a 20-style men’s Made in Italy offering. “This is my way of bringing back the Italian craft to our customers,” Malka said.
