Well, there are 2 levels of "Henry Maxwell" shoes at Fosters: the bespoke models, of which they have quite a few beautiful old examples in their window, and a RTW line. The owners of Fosters purchased the Henry Maxwell company a few years ago, after Maxwell had gone through a long line of owners over the past few decades. I believe Maxwell is the oldest of the bespoke shoemaking firms still extant in London (if you consider Maxwell extant). I think that, historically, the Maxwell shoes had a different typical heel height than the Foster bespokes, but I don't know if today there is any difference, nor do I know which label would come with a bespoke pair or how that determination would be made. My recollection is that the Maxwell RTW line is at the low end of the various Foster RTW shoes; it is probably made by Trickers, Barkers, or somebody like that. The more expensive RTW shoes at Fosters are mainly C&J, with a few models still made by E Green. An interesting side note: I understand that Fosters has a large collection of the old Peal & Co. lasts (I assume bespoke), which the company picked up when Peal went out of business.
