    From the late 70s to his death in 1991 the great George Cleverley worked as a design consultant for New & Lingwood, and an excellent firm bearing his name, George J. Cleverley & Co., under the direction of Mr. George Glasgow, exists today, but it is important to note that the shoe shown here dates from Cleverley’s own original workrooms at 27, Cork Street, and was made by the masters own hands. Cleverley is considered to be the greatest master shoemaker of the mid- to late-20th century, and in a direct line with hismaster, arguably the greatest master of modern English shoemaking, the London shoemaker, Nikolaus Tuczek, about whom I will write more in the coming months.
    Cleverley apprenticed under the great Tuczek who’s stylistic influence can be seen clearly in the present pair of Golf Brogues and, indeed in the work of many great shoemakers including Lobb who name more than one style after that master. The beauty, not to mention the historical importance of this great rarity cannot be overstated. This is a wearable work of art, a bespoke shoe, hand-sewn,.and, unlike a modern shoe, even from the best modern bespoke shoemakers, the shoe will continue to increase in value as it has done these last 45 years!

    Ready made shoes from the present firm Lobb are in the $1500 category and bespoke shoes like these about three times that price. The present shoe is a superb example of the great traditions of shoemaking. A sporting shoe for the gentleman of privileged, a piece of history beyond price.

    UK 8E......US 8.5D....Continental 41.5D, for the medium width foot.

    Shoe Condition:
