    Hi Guys,

    Is there any where to get shoe lasts done in the bay area so that I can place a bespoke shoe order or am I SOL?? Thanks and Happy New Year!

    It will be interesting to find out if there's any local artisans. Maybe one of those hidden Mexican cowboy boot shops?

    BTW, some English bespoke shoe makers do travel to SF Bay Area. Check ASW's blog.

    Any idea to which Mexican boot shops those may be?

    Isn't Riccardo Bestetti's brother working in CA making boots?

    From necro AAAC:

    Riccardo's brother Luca Bestetti is now living in Los Angeles and producing high end cowboy boots together with his business partner Gregory Westbrook. The name of their company is L.B. Monroe (no connection to me).

    I used to buy cowboy boots from Gregory when he worked at Billy Martin's in Los Angeles. They are making private label boots for some high end specialty retailers and for private individuals.
