FIND A BESPOKE SHOEMAKER

Rebecca_for_SSFHaving 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 skilful 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.

S.S.F. Member Rebecca Thorne of Bill Bird Shoes (pictured) also qualified as our Student of the Year 2014.

Bill Bird ShoesOur member Bill Bird is a master orthopaedic footwear maker and teacher (pictured back left of the photograph).

Bill Bird Shoes is based in Moreton-on-the-Marsh and employs several lifetime members of the Society of Shoe Fitters, all of whom use their mainstream shoe fitting experience to enhance their bespoke shoemaking service.

Bill’s unique skills and forty years’ experience have been captured for posterity allowing them to be shared with an international audience.

A series of films, each one addressing a different medical condition and how an orthopaedic maker would approach creating bespoke footwear for that condition, has been produced and we are delighted to share them with you.

The films have been uploaded onto YouTube, here’s the link – enjoy! www.youtube.com
