Handmade shoes

A bespoke pair of handmade shoes will fit like a glove and last for years with a bit of care and attention.

Many people are left frustrated by the fit of high street or ‘off the shelf’ shoes. These might look good on the shelf but they simply cannot be compared with something that is hand made by a craftsman who understands the human foot and the materials and craft of shoemaking. We have heard many stories of people adding insoles, grips and buying odd sizes to suit their needs – and still have to live with the unhappy consequences.

At Bolton Bros we aim to exceed our customer’s expectations every time. Whether you require a pair of shoes for medical reasons or just want to experience the joy of a high quality, bespoke pair of shoes, we can help.

All of our shoes start with bespoke measurements and carefully prepared lasts which provide the form for the shoe. Our leathers are of the best quality and treated with care. The chosen design is adapted and hand cut by our pattern maker before our ‘clicker’ cuts the selected leather to match. The closer then sews the pieces together before the upper is stretched over the last for a perfect fit and any insoles or custom insoles fitted.

“Fitting” is desirable before we complete the shoe and add the soles. We make sure of a perfect fit and maximum comfort.
