Bentley announced that it has partnered with Dominic Ciambrone, the man behind the sneaker customizing brand The Surgeon. Together, they will create a series of limited edition shoes for the luxury automaker’s customers.
The brands’ collaboration started earlier this year, when Ciambrone visited the Bentley headquarters in Crewe, England, to see how the brand’s Mulliner customization department operated, and how to best match his sneaker making to its customers.
Together, they created a collection of limited-edition sneakers focused on Bentley’s model lines, plus one completely unique pair that will be unveiled at Art Basel Miami next month. The limited models feature Bentley-specific design language like diamond quilting and cross-stitching, and even use the same hides as the automaker. All are based on the Adidas Forum Low sneaker.

The first set focuses on performance and is inspired by Bentley’s S and Speed ranges. These feature a Titan Grey and Cricket Ball deep red color combination, and are designed to evoke the athletic stance of the Continental GT Speed Convertible.
The second sneaker focuses on wellbeing, and is inspired by the automaker’s Azure models. These shoes feature Portofino blue with Saddle colored details inside, and are inspired by the Bentayga Extended Wheelbase Azure.
Finally, The Surgeon has created a unique, 1 of 1 pair of shoes made specifically to complement a car that has not yet been unveiled. Featuring a Beluga black and Anthracite dark gray metallic exterior, the sneaker gets a Linen and Beluga interior.
The shoe will be presented at Art Basel Miami next month alongside a custom, 1 of 1 Bentley vehicle created by Mulliner. The two pieces will be sold together, and interested buyers are encouraged to inquire with their local American Bentley dealer.
“Creativity and bespoke design is consistently woven into our DNA and has been since 1919, especially as it relates to our private coachbuilding division of Mulliner”, Christophe Georges, President & CEO, Bentley Americas, commented. “Connecting and producing with a likeminded creative like The Surgeon is not only rewarding but also exciting to watch as we support the next generation of diverse craftspeople who share similar brand values.”
