Today’s Favorites – Jan Kielman

I’M BACK!!!!

The phrase, “you learn something new every day,” is truly an accurate thing. I say this because many of my readers like to write me personally, mostly to ask questions but every now and then to also provide me with some information, that I may or may not know, in which to possibly use on the blog. This is great because, in many cases, I am new to the information that they are providing, as in the case at hand with bespoke shoes from Poland, by maker Jan Kielman.

And of course, when it comes to shoes, I love to learn new things about them and the people that make them. So when a reader of mine informed me of some of the more well known makers from Poland, I decided to check them out. The first one I came to was Jan Kielman, and boy did I discover a land full of shoe porn. What I liked about his site, is that he displayed his work, as I think every bespoke maker should, by taking pictures of shoes that he has made for past clients. It is such a great way to allow people to truly see your work and what you can do, as well as provide potential clients with ideas of what they might possible want to have made, especially for those who may be less creative yet want something unique. So here, I have displayed some of the more unique shoes that I found. I cannot say that I would wear all of these but I certainly appreciated the creativity behind them. So please enjoy….
