Shoe Uppers


Order a pair of calf leather shoe uppers tailor-made for your shoe making project; choose from a classic Derby, Oxford or Wholecut style, in a wide choice of colours and with detailing options; made with a natural calf lining with reverse counters for heel grip.

These uppers are made to fit our 0743 last as standard or they can be made to fit your lasts. If you want to order them for your own lasts, please email us to let us know what you would like to do and send us the LEFT last ONLY so that we can make the uppers to fit correctly. This product is made to order and will take 3 to 4 weeks.

If you want to learn more about shoemaking or to top up your work bench check out our Supplies Shop in more detail selling everything from videos, kits and lasts to the specialist shoe making tools and materials that we use in our own shoemaking workshop here in London. (If we don’t sell something, it’s often because you’ll be able to find it at your local hardware store or there is a simple alternative, like fishing line instead of bristles).

Kits include the Full Monty,  Half Monty and our specialist thread making kit (including our home-made thread wax) and Bakers of Colyton oak bark tanned leather. If you want to learn shoe making at home or to top up your know-how, then our shoe making videos walk you step by step through the handsewn shoe making process from measuring feet to hand finishing. Here’s a taster 

If you have any questions about handsewn shoe making please don’t hesitate to email us, to sign up for a  Zoom session or why not join us for one of our tailored handsewn shoe making courses and classes?

Please note that returns and cancellations are not accepted on this customised product.
