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. John Lobb is of course, the premiere workshop for traditional English Shoes and stands noticeably above even the other superior shoemakers such as Church´s or Crockett & Jones, Alden, Weston etc., and along with Edward Green and (I believe) the old Peal & Co., is in the top category of shoemakers in the world. Ready made shoes from Lobb are in the $1200-1600 category and John Lobb bespoke shoes start at £5000 for shoes and £1000 for shoe-trees. http://www.johnlobbltd.co.uk/pricelist/

Size Details:Marked UK 6.5EE. This is a very difficult size to obtain, a relatively small and wide fitting, and is available only on special order from the factory. By my precise measurements, this is comparable to a US 7.5E or an 8D or E. In European terms, a 40,5E or, just as well, a 41 D or E, medium to slightly wide. Please feel free to address me with any size questions.
