Anyone aware of quality bespoke shoes on the west coast? I'm in Portland and would love to find something in Portland, Seattle, or San Francisco, although my arm could be twisted on L.A.

Thank you! I'm in Redmond and not difficult to hire, just slow. At the bottom of the the page here you will see some of the styles of shoes I have been making. Also if you check out posts I've made on this forum there are a number of shoes I've posted as well as boots.

Newb here:

1. When getting bespoke shoes, is the last a "house style" or is it custom-made to your foot's proportions?

2. What is the general price range for entry level up to top tier bespoke shoes (from any maker)?

Craig Corvin is a good shoemaker from what I've seen (wasn't aware he was in Seattle). There's also a fellow in Eugene--Romango Shoes. I don't know the fellow at Exit shoes.

Bespoke generally means to your specifications both in terms of fit and style.
