ABOUT US

We love shoes, made the old-fashioned way. 

There are over 200 steps in the process of making a bespoke shoe by hand. At The Walk, we make sure every step is done with love and dedication.

Everything is done by hand, from the measurement of your feet to the welting of the soles. The leathers, lining and soles are personally selected from tanneries and certified wholesalers in the UK, Italy, France or Portugal. 

Making things personal is what we do. If you would like a softer or harder insole, or have your initials monogrammed on your shoe, consider it done. For the real aficionados we do patina finishing, taking a neutral colored leather and having it hand dyed in any design or color.

What does TheWalk mean to you?
The Walk reflects my creative and entrepreneurial side and gives me the opportunity to work with products that I have a passion for, together with a friend that I’ve known for over 20 years!

What do you do besides The Walk?
I live in London with my wife and work at an organization that supplies medicines to developing countries and NGOs. I travel often, for work or pleasure but my main hobby is art, which I collect and trade through my website notenoughwalls.com. If I have time left, I try to go to the gym or catch a spinning class. Oh yes and cooking, or rather, eating. I like that too.

Which shoe model is your favorite and why?
Generally I am a fan of shoes made in the classic, English style. No pointy loafers for me, no sir. If I would have to pick a favorite model, I’d have to pick the Jodhpur. You don’t see this model often and the fact that you can have a pair in for example green suede makes them even cooler!

What does The Walk mean to you?
Taking craft, originality, detail and quality pretty seriously I have emerged myself in the do’s and dont’s of footwear. We combined all of our creativity and backgrounds to produce an experience tailored to you. Being able to have a place to let all of that run wild is what The Walk means to me!

What do you do besides The Walk?
My wife and I live in The Hague and have a happy little family of two. I work as manager business support with a company that provides nutritional healthcare in The Netherlands. When I am not exploring the world with my camera I like to play squash or a round of golf. If the weather permits I like to hit the water with a kite.

Which shoe model is your favorite and why?
Definitely The Newell! A shoe without laces that looks sporty but elegant at the same time and slips on like a loafer, need I say more?!
