What goes into a custom pair of shoes?

First I will meet with you to learn why it is you want a pair of bespoke shoes.  That can be done at my shop in Lake Tahoe or if that’s not possible we can arrange a time to meet somewhere that’s more convenient for you.  It’s important that I gain a sense of your personal style, taste, and personality.  Once I have a better idea for who you are and what you’re looking for, we will discuss style options and various patterns that match both your personality and your wardrobe.  Once the leathers have been chosen I will take measurements of your feet and go through a thorough assessment to ensure the best fit possible.

What size belt should I order?

People often make mistakes about how to size a belt properly so please call me so I can instruct you on the best way to take a measurement.  If that is not possible then simply add two inches to your waist line or pant size.
