Bespoke Shoes I Have Made

shoe_shob_bespoke_shoes1

In my quest to start my own shoe line, I went to Italy to learn the art of shoe making by hand, under the late Stefano Bemer. I did this because I wanted to be an owner of a shoe company who actually knew everything that there was to know about shoes, most importantly the construction and being able to justify why my shoes will cost what they do. During that time, and even still when I get some free time, I was able to make some shoes for myself that pretty much represent me and my style sense. Obviously some of them are relatively ostentatious, as you will see, but when it’s bespoke, the leather presents itself, and you are not afraid to try something crazy, this is what happens. I hope that you all enjoy the pictures.
