London Super Trunk Show – Brand Showcase #6 – Ramon Cuberta

Ramon Cuberta 4

Ramon Cuberta is another bespoke shoemaker also based in Barcelona, but was trained at home first by two Spanish independent shoemakers (pretty sure Norman Vilalta helped him along the way) and then by one who freelanced for John Lobb Ltd. He became know for offering full bespoke at relatively low prices(starts at £1750/€2 050), and during spring he’ll also launch a Made to Measure range of five models, three lasts, made as his bespoke shoes but will start at£1 200/€1 400. Like his colleague Norman Vilalta, Mr. Ramon Cuberta has also now starting offering his own RTW range, which cost around £390/€450 and will be showcased at The Super Trunk Show in London.

The RTW are Goodyear welted and made in Spain in the shoemaking region Almansa. Initially he launched only three models, which were three of the favorites from his bespoke samples, but has some more models in the pipeline. Lasted shoe trees are also included in the price, which is quite a good deal at the end of the day.

    I’ve always wondered about men who choose to wear elongated pointy shoes like this. The French seem to have a particular predilection for them. I’ve got an as yet untested theory that it is to make up for a lack of size downstairs. Would any of your readers like to take part in a survey on this topic? Could make for a fascinating study. As Shoe (s)Nob perhaps this research project could be your life’s work? Z

      LOLOL, he may not partake given he’s a 4 ft gimp who makes atrocious shoes.

    Hi Justin, What would be the price range of shoes at LONDON SUPER TRUNK SHOW? I am planning to visit the Northampton Factory Stores; is it worth visiting? Considering my shoe size is EUR 41, UK 7, would I find any good options at Crockett & Jones and Church’s. Any particular shoe factory, I should visit in Northampton. Let me know. Thanks.

      You sound like you like to save the pennies my friend. Have you tried thrifting on eBay for shoes? This sounds like it might work for you! Even if they don’t fit quite right just squeeze your little twinkle toes in! 😉

      On being a size 7 shoe I’m genuinely curious, is it true what they say about men’s shoe size being a reflection of dinkle size? If this is true I can only sympathise with you.

        Your comments show how insecure you are about your dinkle and your life.
