I am familiar with 3 US-based bespoke shoemakers: Perry Ercolino, who works out of Doylestown, Pa but also spends time in NYC, sharing space with bespoke tailor Leonard Logsdale (ex-Savile Row). He has a web site www.perryercolino.com
According to a recent e-mail exchange, his current price is $2800. Vincent & Edgar (NYC): I don't know much about them, but as I recall they have been mentioned favorably in articles about bespoke shoes, in Cigar Afficionado and/or the Robb Report. ____ Bootmakers in the Wall Street area of NYC (I forget the name): they are mentioned in the Vass book. Also, many of the UK bespoke makers do trips to the US, including Cleverley and John Lobb (the original from St. James, London) and, perhaps, Henry Maxwell (now joined with Foster & Sons, Jermyn Street, London) and Jason Amesbury. I recently received the Lobb mailing about their US trip, but I threw it out. As I recall, the price of the Lobb shoes is north of $3000. Cleverley's are around $2000, I think. Also, Edward Green has begun a bepoke service, but this is probably only available in the UK. The Lobb/Hermes (Paris) bespoke shoemakers do travel to NYC as well; I'm sure either the Hermes Madison Avenue store or the NYC Lobb store can give you details. I think these bespoke shoes may be north of $4,000. Of the Italian makers, I am really only familiar at all with Lattanzi; his NYC store perhaps can do bespoke shoes, as I think he travels occasionally to the US. His shoes are really expensive. Of the other French makers, perhaps Berluti can do bespoke over here; I know they are planning to open a US store, but I don't think they have done so yet, so this may be premature. JM Weston has a bespoke service based on a computer-aided lastmaking process; however, I think this is only offered at one or more of the Paris stores. I'll defer to others in terms of quality; one thing I will say is that it makes sense to decide whose "house style" you like. Certainly the Cleverley toe is distinctive and a good choice for many people. If you don't mind spending the extra dollars, I think it is hard to beat the original Lobb London shoes. I also think it is nice to give the business to a family-run enterprise, rather than the Hermes/LVMH's of the world. Given the prices of these makers, it makes a trip to Budapest to visit Vass look more reasonable, if you can afford the time. I'm sure this time of year the airfare would be ridiculously cheap.
