Ramon Cuberta New 2018 RTW Collection

Ramon Cuberta has recently launched his new 2018 collection and although small, it packs a punch. With 4 shoes on offer to choose from, there is no room for error with whether or not you like something, at least for Ramon’s sake. But safe to say for him, while slightly bolder than your average oxford, the model with separate facing (as highlighted), coming in two shades of brown should be able to gain most people’s […]

The London Super Trunk 2017 – The Results

As many of you may have read, I am soon moving to NYC. That being, I have been up to my eyeballs in sorting out my life here to have a seamless transition between countries. But what that means is that my time is quite limited for long blog posts and whatnot. Therefore, while I would have liked to make my own post about the London Super Trunk that Jesper and I put on, I […]

Ramon Cuberta New Made to Measure Models

Ramon Cuberta has just released two new and very attractive models for his ‘Made to Measure’ program to give customers more options in choosing their favorite model. His MTM program is much like the bespoke in which you can get a fully handmade shoe, but what is different (much like MTM in suiting) is that instead of getting a custom made made and measurements, you get approximate measurements based off another last and fitting it […]

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

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 […]

Ramon Cuberta Swan Neck Oxford – True Beauty!

There are not too many saddle oxfords out there, but an even more underrepresented oxford is the swan neck oxford, which for me is among the most elegant of oxfords. It goes back to the whole idea of being afraid of what we are not used to, like dark blue, dark green or any color leather outside of oxblood, black and shades of brown. I actually find this shoe to be more elegant and formal […]

Ramon Cuberta New Unique Creation

I realized yesterday that my recent posts were on a path of similarity with who I was writing about and who I wanted to write about in the same week, in the fact that they were all Spanish. So I figured, ‘hey, let’s make this a Spanish shoe week!’ That being, allow me to present you Ramon Cuberta’s latest project which is a very creative wingtip adelaide that takes lines/edges (in both pattern, last and […]

The Sharpest Chisel on the Block – Ramon Cuberta

  Ramon Cuberta (bespoke shoemaker out of Barcelona) makes a sharp chisel toe. It just might be the sharpest that I have ever seen. There is no mistaking that line and it really gives off the idea of how chisel a chisel last can go. Part of this is creating a very sharp last on the corners of the toe box, but also doing a very good job of molding (hammering and sanding down) the leather toe […]

Ramon Cuberta – Another Barcelona Shoemaker

It’s amazing how many shoemakers there actually are in this world, that probably most really don’t know about. Thankfully for the internet though one is able to learn about them and quite possibly make a point to visit/commission a pair of their shoes. When you think about the cost of bespoke shoes, one might not be able to justify spending £3000 on a pair of British made ones, but would much rather justify going to […]
