    Little need be said about this good shoemaker, neither the family run shop in London nor its branch opened in Paris at the beginning of the last century and acquired by Hermès in 1976. Lobb shoes are thought to be the last word in luxury by some and, while this may be an exaggeration, they certainly deserve a reputation for quality, comfort, elegance and quiet good taste (when as in this case they refrain for their excursions into doubtful modern designs). The fit and finish of this pair is excellent.  These are made to measure in Lobb’s Paris workrooms.
    As to color, the darker photographs are the more accurate. These shoes are a lovely, warm, medium brown.

    An historical note: You are soon to be in the company of Winston Churchill, Somerset Maugham, Charles de Gaulle, Alfred Hitchcock, J. Paul Getty, and Gregory Peck. Not to mention likes of The Prince of Wales and Hugh Grant and a smattering of discerning female clients -Jacqueline Kennedy and Katharine Hepburn, for example, were faithful customers.

    Size Details:

    Unmarked for size, however by my precise measurements: UK 8.5E....US 9.5D....Continental 42.5D, for the medium width foot.
