John Lobb Bespoke Savoir-Faire


John Lobb began making besopke boots and shoes over 150 years ago and the brand's traditional savoir-faire remains to this day. Bespoke means designing and manufacturing shoes to conform perfectly both to the shape of your foot and to your aesthetic wishes. This artisanal process is carried out in Paris workshop at 32 rue de Mogador. Each pair requires an average of 50 hours work by highly qualified craftsmen.


The master Last-maker initiates the process by taking a series of foot measurements, while the client chooses the model, shape and type of leather, as well ass the height of the heel, the sole and any other articular details, Following this first appointment, the shape of the foot is sculpted in hornbeam wood.


A second appointment is required to try on a mock-up of the shoe. This allows the craftsman to further refine the precision of the last that will be used to create the desired pair. The third appointment consists of the final fitting and delivery of your desired bespoke pair of John Lobbs.


Every pair of John Lobbs created in the bespoke workshop is designed to offer your many long years of comfort and with advise the best way to care and maintain your John Lobbs.


 This timeless elegance bespoke John Lobbs shoe is in unique comfort and has no generic size or width; they will fit only when you order them and express the personality of the wearer.
