• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

Will you have any models at the ~200$ price point, which are competitive with Meermin. What about shipping and returns?

Are you able to add a rubber topy half sole for an extra fee, after the shoe is stitched? I like Blake constructed shoes for the flexibility and lightness, but the stitch method means they aren't very helpful when it rains. A rubber topy applied after it is stitched negates this.

Great to see another quality shoe-maker here in Asia - I look forward to visiting the store once the current coronavirus siutation sorts itself out (still here in Beijing at the moment ...)!
Thank you. Lets keep ourselves safe and hopefully the world can overcome this Covid-19 situation in time to come.

Most of our shoes with Blake construction already have a rubber pad affixed on top of the leather outsole. For models without, you can opt to add on a Vibram half rubber and/or metal toe taps. These are additional.

When the rubber is already on, are you Blake stitching through the rubber? The waterproofing issue isn't much better if stitched through, as the stitches wick the water up into the sole.

Our current Blake models are constructed this way. But we have some current, and new models that will be available online with a full leather outsole. So Vibram can be added upon request.

How many different lasts do you currently have, and will all sizes in all lasts be at the trunk show in order to work out size?

Thanks!

We have quite a number of lasts. But for the trunk show, we will be having fitting pairs in 3 different lasts due to space constraints. One of it will be a loafer last.

Some of you have enquired regarding our lasts and fitting pairs at the upcoming Super Trunk.

Pictured here are 2 new lasts we recently introduced in our RTW shoes. They have asymmetrical fitting properties, with additional room on the lateral side. Both lasts will be available as fitting pairs in London.
