Shoes minister Hugo de Jonge

Hugo de Jonge has been a minister in the House of Representatives since 2017, but he only really became known to the general public through the many press conferences during the pandemic. Next to Mark Rutte he was shining on his Mascolori's. Shoes that he carefully selected in our store, or ordered via the webshop.

Hugo de Jonge also stands out during his daily walks through Het Binnenhof because of his special shoes. He now has an enormous collection of Mascolori's, with which he manages to make the political world a little more beautiful. And he is absolutely right! Because why would you only wear black, blue and gray?

“I always wear cheerful shoes and this is a cheerful day,” he said to NOS on the day he was sworn in as minister. “There is no reason to live a gloomy and boring life.” Hugo de Jonge's shoes immediately became a trending topic. The new minister was the talk of the day. The reactions were quite diverse: jubilant support, but also disapproval, because it would distract attention from politics.

The frivolous men's shoes would show that Hugo de Jonge does not take things so seriously. But the opposite is of course true: Hugo de Jonge works very hard, but you can just celebrate life! Fortunately, most reactions to his shoes are very positive. Hugo de Jonge has taste, courage and a good view of fashion, art and culture.

Brand shoes Hugo de Jonge

Minister Hugo de Jonge swears by the Mascolori brand when it comes to his shoes. On the one hand, this is of course because our men's shoes are of very good quality and simply fit very comfortably. Comfort and wearing pleasure are important values ​​for Mascolori. You should be able to wear them all day with ease. Even if you have to walk a long way or stand for a long time.

But the main reason why Hugo de Jonge chooses shoes from Mascolori is of course the appearance. Because that is very surprising again and again. Bright, striking colours, special materials such as fur and cork, exclusive designs and limited editions: he wears them all. And quite honestly? That suits him very well.

The Mascolori brand has been around since 2011 and is made for people who see the world a little differently. Taking those other steps. Choose a different perspective. Mascolorists are people who are not afraid to pioneer, express their opinions and explore new ideas. They are interesting and cheerful people. A group that keeps growing!

Mascolori shoes are basically created on the drawing board in Rotterdam. Usually by our own designers, but sometimes also in collaboration with other creative and enterprising people. So designed Arno Coenen the well-known Markthal shoe and artist Pieter Zandvliet presents a collage of his work on a pair of men's shoes.

In Portugal, the designs really come to life in a small-scale shoe factory. Here we work with attention and craftsmanship on our new Mascolori's. We then sell the small quantities in our stones store in Rotterdam and via our webshop.

Boots Hugo de Jonge

Since January 2022, Hugo de Jonge has been Minister for Housing and Spatial Planning. A construction company from Katwijk gave him a pair of brightly decorated work boots as a gift for construction. Of course with a nod to Mascolori. We think it's quite an honor.

Hugo de Jonge could also have gotten boots from Mascolori. Perhaps not immediately suitable for construction, but certainly for almost any other occasion! Because our boots can be worn with good jeans, but certainly also in combination with a nice suit. For the man who is not afraid to look a little different.

Mascolori boots come in the same beautiful prints and designs as the pointed toe shoes. Made from materials such as leather, satin, stool, fur and suede. In a wide variety of colours, there is always a pair you will fall for. Figuratively then. Because Mascolori boots fit exceptionally well and are very comfortable to walk on.

Mascolori boots are made in a very small edition, so that they remain very exclusive. The model really breathes rock 'n roll and with that we show exactly who this boot was made for: the man who cherishes the artist within himself.
