    The ideal business and evening dress shoe.

    The handwork in this shoe, up to and including the oak-tanned, channelled and skived double spade sole, and the hand set horse shoe nailed heels are a testament to the skill of this artisan and a compelling example of mid-centrury bespoke-level shoemaking at its very finest. Overall, this degree of hand work is rarely seen today. The 1000 Euro ready-mades of Lobb and Green and Weston do not compare to this shoe. This is 19th century hand craftsmanship brought into the 20th. The overall appearance of this shoe is one of ultimate simplicity and quiet elegance as befitting the gentleman-officer who’s dress uniform it was intended to complete. This would certainly be the last word in a business and or evening dress shoe for the gentleman who’s has the good fortune to be this size. Certainly one of the finest shoes in this collection.
