Day 2 of London Collections Men and I headed down to Jermyn Street. There were foodie stalls such as Henson & Lyderson and a Mayfair classic Fortnum & Masion. Artisans were on hand from many of the local shops to impart their specialist knowledge on the general public.
During 2015 I completed a long term goal of making a pair of handmade shoes.
I enrolled on a Carreducker shoe making course and after twenty plus weeks & many blisters, I created the above. Whilst being the most expensive, they are probably the comfiest and definitely the best made pair of shoes I have ever owned.
I have now moved onto my second pair. Whilst being slightly more bespoke, they are going through every one the 200+ steps that go into a hand made pair of shoes, that will last for at least as many months.
