Men's dress shoes seem to be the most difficult shoe category to shop for because they can easily create discomfort and cause damage to our feet. If you happen to own a pair of shoes that have become very comfortable over the years through regular wear, they have essentially become a negative mold of your feet, holding extremely valuable and accurate information about every contour of your feet. If you would like to recreate this exact same fit before the leather starts to crack, we can help.
Exact Fit Recreation Process
Reverse Engineering & Bespoke Last Sculpting
We use our proprietary reverse engineering process to obtain the exact dimensions of the interior of your dress shoes or boots and proceed with our model rebuilding process to sculpt the left and right shoe lasts from scratch, which is the mold used to craft your final shoes. This set of bespoke lasts can be repeatedly used for future orders. We never mirror copy the left shoe last dimensions to the right shoe last or vice versa as we have yet to come across two shoes/feet that are exactly the same even if the shoes were originally numbered off-the-rack shoes.
Style Recreation Process
We may recreate the design of your favorite dress shoes or boots, you may select a design from our classic collection, or request a completely new design. The design you choose will be custom patterned using your personal custom lasts. We never use pre-existing patterns.
Our fit recreation process is included in the price of our bespoke shoes and boots. Our bespoke shoes and boots start at $970 and $1120 respectively.

Fit Recreation Time
Our fit recreation process takes 10 business days from the day we receive your shoes. Once the process is complete, we will ship your shoes back to you using insured and trackable UPS or DHL Worldwide Express.
Once the fit recreation process is complete, our last maker will proceed with the carving of your personal bespoke lasts. This process takes 10 business days.
Now that your lasts are completed, our shoemaker will use your personal lasts to begin the crafting of your shoes. The shoemaking process takes a total of 12 weeks. A big portion of this time is spent allowing the leather upper to be stretched on top of your bespoke lasts so that your shoes will keep the shape of your lasts once they are removed from your shoes.

Your shoes, once fully completed, will be shipped to your home using insured and trackable UPS or DHL shipping and take anywhere between 3 to 10 business days depending on the country you live in. Your tracking number will be sent to you by email and text message.
