DO I NEED MEASURING BY A PROFESSIONAL TO PURCHASE FOOTWEAR

Yes, we will only make footwear you have been measured for professionally as our sizes and fitting do not relate to high-street sizes and as every pair is made to order a mistake is very expensive for you.

HOW MUCH DOES THE FOOTWEAR COST

A pair of shoes made for you based on our current styles, materials and last accommodation chart will start at £137.50 based on style and a pair of boots will start at £240.00 based on style.

CAN I ORDER LARGER OR SMALLER SIZES THAN ARE SHOWN ON YOUR PRODUCT PAGES

We will try wherever possible to manufacture different sizes, however some styles become impractical to manufacture in smaller sizes, and some styles become un-attractive in larger sizes. These specially made products are non-returnable so when in doubt contact us first.

CAN I ORDER ANY STYLE OR COLOUR OF FOOTWEAR I WANT

We are happy to produce any style and colour of footwear for our customers; howver some products may be non-returnable, so if in doubt contact us first.
