What are bespoke custom shoes?
Bespoke/Custom made shoes are crafted one pair at a time for a specific client. Bespoke/Custom shoes require a last made for a persons exact measurements and instep. A last is a wooden shoe form scupted to fit and look perfectly. The last dtermines the fit, toe shape and heel height of a shoe, it is considered the most important step in Bespoke shoe making. Our lasts are made in Germany by one of the worlds' most trusted last makers to the Bespoke shoe maker community. Then they are expertly shaped in our workshop to match the customers measurements and also make the shape as attractive as possible without sacrificing fit and comfort. The process for a Bespoke Shoe takes 4 to 6 months to complete.
