Today we’d like to introduce Mr. Paul Davies, Director at The London Shoemaker. Originally from Sittingbourne, England Mr. Davis learned his trade cutting his teeth with the top cobblers in London and has been in the footwear industry since the early 1980′s. His shop is located in rural countryside and horse country of Middleburg, VA and he is celebrating the recent grand opening of his new leather and crafts boutique where his product is made on site in the USA.
The London Shoemaker offers bespoke handcrafted shoes, boots, and RTW house shoes in calf, suede, velvet, buckskins, and exotics and select leather accessories for those looking for something classic but distinct. While Paul’s product is bespoke and therefore personally customized, he leans towards a classic rounded toe with stacked heel. The process begins with a consultation where the foot is measured and a specific last is created. Next, the leather and design are selected. Calf or exotic? suede or velvet? Split toe or whole cut? Embroidery or riding boot? The choice is yours. The fitting follows the design where any inconsistencies are considered by Mr. Davies himself and adjusted for fit, form, and function. Lastly the soles are attached and each pair is finished with a polish and a pair of handmade shoe trees to protect your investment.
