New bespoke shoes, boots and excursions


Welcome back shoe fans. As you can see we've been busy at the workbench again this week with a few more pairs lining up.  These are a pair of two-tone Oxford shoes with a 1930s snub toe...



...a natural sole finish and polished edges...


and unusually with a square waist, a fiddle waist. It worked out quite neatly after all.


The next pair are work in progress...a pair of bespoke Barkan Desert Boots in French Navy and caramel calf. Yum!



They've now been welted...



and will soon have a full commando sole attached to cope with the wet winter months! We'll share the photos when they're finished, but we think they're looking lovely.

We did sneak off for a few hours though...to don sturdy boots, hard hats and high vis jackets! Here's a few sneaky pics....exciting things will happen in November. (No it's not our new studio...well, not yet)!


  







Any guesses? 

That's all for now. Until next week, happy shoemaking...
we'll leave you with some seasonal Barkan boot photos...
