The Ultimate "HARDCORE" Shoe Porn Thread (Bespoke only) - Page 94

post #1396 of 2469

Wondering given all the experience on this thread who you guys would recommend for a first pair of bespoke shoes? I don't travel as much as I used to so that is a consideration for me. Thank you in advance for any thoughts, R.

A laced shoe gives the boot-maker a little more flexibility if you choose an elastic sided slip on as your first shoe you may have a long wait as your last will need to be spot on which may not happen quickly.

Bespoke shoe wearers tend to fit into two opposite schools: those who buy the classics like a black cap toe Oxford which they know they will wear a lot and those who want something a little unusual which they cannot get off the shelf and will wear on high days and holidays. You will know which type of person you are.

I'm going to be in Warszawa and Krakow next month and would love to pick up some Polish shoes.
Thanks in advance.

 

 

Hello,

 

I'm sorry for late response.

Mr. Januszkiewicz offers only bespoke shoes.

Current prices start at 2000 PLN (polish zloty) = about 600 USD or 500 EUR (for calf leather). No exotic leathers available but you may deliver any leather you want. Shell cordovan is available form time to time.

 

Did you have a chance to visit Warsaw last month?

If you have any questions just ask :)

 

Kind Regards,

 

Damian
