Our bespoke shoe service is about you, making shoes and boots to fit your feet, suit your style and perform in a specific environment – whether a pair of boots for the snow or dress shoes for a Gala dinner.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We start by measuring your feet – using a pencil to draw the outline and a tape measure to note circumferences and idiosyncrasies – before choosing a style, detailing and leathers. This can be done in person at one of our central London locations or virtually, if you prefer.
Our skilled last maker transforms your measurements into a pair of bespoke wooden lasts with your chosen toe shape and heel height.
We draw your chosen style onto the lasts, paying close attention to flow and proportion. Our specialist closer then creates paper patterns, clicks out the leather and stitches the uppers in the leather you have chosen.
We prepare the shoes for a fitting, at which point we will see you again in person, or virtually if you prefer. This is the first glimpse of your shoes as you imagined them and is our opportunity to check and adjust the fit
We hand sew your shoes in our London workshop using the centuries-old tools, techniques and skills of the handsewn craft; working with Bakers’ oak-bark pit-tanned leather.
If you decide to have trees, our last maker will carve them to fit your shoes. (Both shoes and lasts are sent to the last maker to ensure well-fitting trees).
We will deliver your shoes to you in person or ship them to you anywhere in the world.
We offer a full polish and repair service.
