Loman Derby Boot

Suede boots, always a pleasure to make as the results are reliably superb. The Loman Derby Boot is no exception

The customer is a builder by trade and he wanted a pair of bespoke suede boots that reflected both his profession and his personal style. He knew exactly what he wanted which is always a great help and we had to guide him through the design process very little. He wanted a round toe and thick sole. However, his initial thought was to have an entirely rubber sole but we pointed out that once it wears through it is a major repair. Whereas if he went for a leather sole with a sticker sole, he could achieve a similar look and also a much more repairable boot. He also wanted a low heel which we icorporated into the bespoke lasts we made for him

From there we added in a few details to give the boots a personal touch

He was absolutely delighted and consequently, so were we. We like to make our customers happy!
