daizawaguy, Many thanks for your question and for Meister's suggestion. It's a question of balance. We want our shoes to be seen - and handled by customers - as an intrinsic part of our living history, and for that reason we don't treat them like museum pieces. Shoes like the Chavez, above, have acquired their patina from years of exposure to sunlight and from countless hands (indeed we know that part of the pleasure of owning shoes is in the handling). We do have leather...
VRaivo, Many thanks for your warm welcome. We hope that we can contribute to the discussions that take place here, Styleforum is already feeling like home! Foster & Son
terrorsquad, Many thanks,the Chavez is one of a number of our bespoke shoes that we are very proud of and it's still ordered regularly today. Foster & Son
 AlexG33, Thanks for the welcome. The patina on this shoe is a Foster speciality and we're glad you like it. We are bringing out a new range of shoes (hence the Edward Green offer) which will include a semi-brogue.

Bick does sound like an idea though, will talk to the guys about it.  Fok, belated or not, much appreciated. Foster & Son

It is incredibly versatile and could, at a pinch, be worn anywhere. It was the inspiration for our Aston Ready to Wear loafer.     It was made before 1930, during our time on Duke of York Street, when London’s bespoke shoe makers were in their prime. The leather is still intact and the shoe...
