Having a pair of shoes made for you is a luxury for some, for others it’s a necessity. It takes tremendous knowledge and dedication to create a Last and make shoes to fit a foot comfortably – but also to a customers specification. These bespoke shoemakers do not just cater for problem feet, they also create footwear that would grace any special occasion.
Thankfully there are still some skilfull artisans left in the UK and The Society of Shoe Fitters are proud to promote the following bespoke shoemakers. Not only are they qualified to make shoes, they are also qualified to fit.
