What do we mean by ex-bespoke shoes? They are bespoke shoes made in the Foster & Son workshop at 83 Jermyn Street from bespoke hides to a customer’s exact specifications, hand-lasted and welted with hand stitched soles. In other words, bespoke shoes that have been made for a Foster & Son bespoke client.
We occasionally have clients who fail to collect their shoes or who need a re-make (where we re-make the shoes from scratch), which can happen for a number of reasons. Except in those cases where the design of the shoe is unique to the person who commissioned them, we then make these shoes available in our shop to other customers.
The photographs below show a pair of our ex-bespoke shoes. It is an elegant punch cap oxford with a beautiful bevelled waist. We believe that they would fit a UK 7.5E.
We will show you some more of our ex-bespoke stock soon.
