    Custom Made-Bespoke “Butterfly” Loafer

    Euro 1250

    This classic “Butterfly” Loafer is inspired by the design originated by the most celebrated shoemaker of the 20th Century, George Cleverley. Cleverley apprenticed under the greatest master of modern English shoemaking, the London shoemaker, Nikolaus Tuczek who’s stylistic influence can be seen in Cleverley’s work and, through him, that of many fine shoemakers including John Lobb, New & Lingwood, Poulsen Skone & Co., and Edward Green. The present shoe is fully custom made, with interlocking “wings”, and with the early sock liner displaying three royal warrants. (The later liner has but two.)

    In 1976, John Lobb was acquired by the Hermès Group, but the London bespoke workshop at 9 St. James’s Street, John Lobb Ltd, remains family-owned and continues to operate independently, hand-making shoes one pair at a time. A pair of bespoke shoes from the St. James’s Street shop now costs £3880 ($5600). http://www.johnlobbltd.co.uk/main/pricelist.htm


    Size Details:

    By my measurement, US Size: 8D/E…….UK 7E/F…….European 41D/E, for the medium to moderately wider foot.

    Shoe Condition:

    These shoes are all original, showing very light wear to soles or heels and very modest creasing to the uppers. Overall, they are a superb example of a heritage shoe, the paradigm of bespoke craftsmanship, with an unimpeachable pedigree, designed and hand-made by the greatest masters of English shoemaking.
