The Shoe Snob Trunk Shows NYC & Sweden – June/July

jfitzpatrick footwear

Each year, I hope to slowly but surely expand my brand and in doing so attempt to go to some of my favorites places for trunk shows, as well as expand to new markets if and when I can. While there is nothing new for these trips in terms of locations (country wise but am going to Gothenburg as well this time), what has happened since I was in both places is that I have expanded greatly not only in my product offering, but will also be ready to start taking proper MTO orders. As you can see I have yet to still officially launch this program but will do so in about a week or so, after I simply tightening it all up on the website.




On top of the offering of new products, what I have done (and am always attempting to do) is working my absolute hardest to make my footwear range, J.FitzPatrick Footwear, better and better. In doing so, I have sourced new leathers, soles, buckles etc as well as tightened up factory procedures to ensure the best possible product. Of course, this takes time and there is still work to be done but since last being in each place, I believe (know in actuality) that the shoes have taken a step up in quality and thus value for money. Therefore, if you came around the first time and did not find anything special, I invite you to try again, with no pressure attached of course!

The trunk show schedule will be as follows: 


June 12th & 13th (Fri/Sat), 11am-7pm
For more information, please email either or

Gothenburg – Sweden
June 26th – Friday evening drinks and display of shoes, starting from 5pm-6pm (but I will be there all day)
June 27th – Trunk show from 1100-1600
For more information please email or

Stockholm – Sweden
July 3rd & 4th, Fri 1100-1900, Sat 1100-1600
For more information please email or

I look forward to seeing everyone there!!

    This is fantastic, thank you. I’ve been looking forward to the MTO program since you first launched the collection. The quality of the product was already good when I came to see you a few months ago, if you’ve managed to improve on that at the same price point, very impressive and I take my hat off to you sir.

    Any ETA on those button boots though? 😀

  • Great news ! Wish you all the best Justin !

    Best of luck, Justin. I have a real admiration for your courage and passion in doing what you love.

    Hi Justin, do you think in the future you would make a premium line which offers a RTW shoe with features like a pitched heel stack and bevelled waists? Similar to something like AC line at Cleverley? Perhaps even with a handwelted sole (not sure if AC Cleverley are handwelted) if possible? After seeing a bespoke shoe on the foot cant go back to normal RTW .. but would be nice to have these features at a more reasonable price. Anand
