The Shoe Man: Grace Dent interviews shoemaker Miguel Marcus Almeida

The Shoe Man BBC Radio 4
,br> Miguel Marcus Almeida is a shoe maker who has always dreamed of making luxury, British designer shoes and selling them to global markets like Japan and the US. Miguel has been asked to design some men's shoes by an agent in Japan, the world's biggest consumer of British luxury brands. But he's under pressure. At the same time, he's getting a collection of shoes ready to showcase in Florence, at one of the most prestigious international men's fashion shows. Here, he'll have the opportunity to meet buyers from around the world and there's a chance he might even meet his prospective Japanese buyers who could take a chance and invest in this little known shoemaker. Can this dreamer who dreams big really crack this?
