〈What is a Good Fit.〉


One of the most popular styles with our overseas customers is split toe shoes. The customer who chose these shoes with a gorgeous burgundy color was from China. He had been aware of us through some social media and visited us with his friend. He had experienced ordering many suits. For the shoes, he did not feel any problems with ready made shoes. But he had been choosing shoes that were two sizes larger than his foot length to fit his foot width. His foot has a lot of volume and changes when he puts his weight on them. We imagined this work would be very difficult. In fact, his tailor had said to him "challenging work " about his big build which is the same as his foot. And this phrase applied to us as well. After a few trial fittings, we could make good fitting shoes for him. Of course, he liked them very much.

We think properly fitting shoes like this enrich an owner's understanding of "what is a good fit " , and it will be the standard for choosing next shoes. We, as bespoke shoemakers, should play this role for customers to know their standards.
