LONDON SUPER TRUNK SHOW 2018 – BRAND HIGHLIGHT #2 — THE SABOT

The webshop The Sabot offer a wide variety of shoes that are very unique to their shop.

Their own Private Label range made by Antonio Meccariello are Goodyear welted, have closed channeled soles and a slim bevelled waist, and overall very high attention to detail of the finish for a pair of shoes starting at about £434/€495 (4,800 SEK). They also have Antonio Meccariello’s own range, the Argentum Dux, made to a higher standard with a Goodyear technique that doesn’t have gemming (you can read more about that HERE). Price is about £670/€770 (7,500 SEK).

Included in Sabot’s offerings are the RTW range of Japanese Yohei Fukuda. This range is made to the absolute highest standards of RTW being hand welted with a machine made sole stitch with hand pricked seams and using the same material in the uppers and soles as his bespoke shoes. Price £1,750/€2,000 (19,500 SEK)
The Sabot also sells a small range of shoes from Spanish factory Andrés Sendra, and recently introduced Japanese RTW makers Joe Works to their stable. They will be the first to bring Joe Works to the West and seeing them in London will be a rare opportunity!
