From the Designer
We have been trialling designs for our version of a casual/sporty shoe that looks great and can be worn for longer walks with comfort. We have settled on a couple of designs for our custom range at lower price points (i.e. the design is ours but you choose colours/leathers/soles) although you can opt for our bespoke option such as the golf shoes pictured below.
For our casual/sport designs, the uppers are made with heavier leather whilst foam insoles and soft rubber soles are used under the feet to emulate a sneaker but without the unattractive thick soles. Like all our footwear, they are made to last many wears and are repairable.
From the Cobbler
Now that warmer weather has arrived, if you are going to pack away your
winter boots, we recommend they be cleaned and thoroughly conditioned
with a good leather cream. Do not store leather footwear in plastic
long term and consider inserting cedar shoe trees into boots/shoes to
help preserve shape and absorb moisture.
Whatever the season, we recommend leather footwear be cleaned and conditioned once every 3 months depending on wear, and finished with a shoe polish to restore colour whilst providing a protective coating. We stock a quality range of footwear accessories including leather care from Saphir, Collonil and Leatherique.
From our Studio
In addition to shoes, we design and make belts, bags, watch bands, dossiers and a variety of leather accessories. Commission us to make something just for you or a special gift.
And remember to look after your feet!
