    The ideal business and evening dress shoe.

    The handwork in this shoe, up to and including the hand-sewn sole, is s a testament to the skill of this artisan and a compelling example of bespoke shoemaking at its very finest. This shoe is bench-made, with oak-tanned sole, and the sort of astonishingly durable hard rubber heel that is no longer made today. Notice the dimples into which the nails are driven. Overall this degree of hand work is rarely if ever seen today. The 1000 Euro ready-mades of Lobb and Green and Weston do not compare to this shoe. This is 19th century hand craftsmanship, pre-Goodyear Welting, hand sewn into a channelled sole. The overall appearance of this shoe is one of ultimate elegance. This is the last word in a business and or evening dress shoe for the gentleman who’s has the good fortune to be this size. Certainly one of the finest shoes in this collection.
