Full Wing-Tip Brogue Oxford – No.88 Last
A privately owned company in continuous tradition for 172 years, Foster & Son is one of the oldest-established custom shoe and bootmakers in the world. With its sister company Henry Maxwell it trades today at 83 Jermyn Street opposite Fortnums. They supply boots, shoes and a wide range of riding and hunting accessories from shops in both London and Paris.
Even those gentlemen prepared to pay £1,870 for shoes or £3600 for boots may not be willing to go barefoot for the 8 months Foster require for delivery. Ref: http://foster.co.uk/our-products/bespoke-services/ Those clients will be accommodated uncompromisingly by Foster’s ready-to-wear line made by Edward Green exemplified by this especially lovely classic pair of Full Brogue Oxfords made on the hugely popular 88 Last “The Great 88”.
