i was wondering when someone was going to ask me that, im 17, what i was getting at is that before my grandpa had the shop Wildsmiths was a very bespoke shoe company, as yo said they made shoes for many, including films such as Lawrence of Arabia. but there has been about 6 or 7 generations of wildsmiths involved in shoes, and the majority of them were uniquely designed. All im saying is that the Wildsmith business may have declined in its reputation over the past years, but the shoes and there quality are always to the best standards, unless of course on the rare occasion there not.
