Bespoke shoes are expensive?
well, yes and no. They can be if you go to a company like John Lobb's where bespoke shoes will cost you as much as a small car. A traditional company - "Adlershoes" at www, has developed a brand new molding system for feet, that you can complete in the comfort of your home. Anybody will be able to handle this since no measurements are required. More details about this can be found on the website.
The quality is similar to that of far more expensive shops and they have a large model base to choose from. Classic British models like the "full brogue" but also modern Italian models are available and prices start as low as Sterling 280.00 - not more than you would pay for a normal pair at you better High Street shop.
They also make fantastic equestrian boots and their forming system in those cases includes the lower legs to make sure the calf's fit as well as the shoe part.
Unique is also their offer of model molded shoe tree's which are as essential as they are logical. Pushing any standard form shoe tree into your designer shoes is like fitting a square peg into a round hole.

It is certainly a website worth checking at
