FAQ

The Walk is specialised in bespoke shoes and accessories.

We pride ourselves in our personal approach and genuine craftsmanship.

Choose from 20 models and 100 types of leather (stock may vary) to customise and personalise your shoe.

You can add a monogram and order a matching belt to complete your look.

Prices for bespoke shoes start from EUR 500.00 and go up depending on model and leather choice

  1. Choose your shoe model, select a leather type and customize your shoes
  2. Make an appointment for a measurement of your feet or select a standard size
  3. Place your order; delivery time varies depending on the amount of orders we have but normally is around 3-4 months.
  4. You will receive regular updates from us about the progress of your order
  5. Your measurements, shipping address and other details are all saved under your personal profile for future orders

1. You make them special!
The shoes are not our shoes, they are your shoes. They are handmade for you only, you are the only one that fit them.

You alone can customize the entire shoe by selecting the style, the leather type, buckles, laces, and other details.

Your monogram can be put onto the bottom of the sole, whatever you prefer!

2. Materials

Your shoes are 100% handmade from the best Italian, French or Portugese leathers and we can genuinely say that we can trace the origin of every part of our product. The soles are hand stitched to the uppers using the Goodyear method and are made from sturdy British leather. Treat your shoes properly (and please do) and they will last you a lifetime.

3. Fit. 

All feet are unique and deserve a pair of bespoke shoes. Once you slip into a pair of shoes that have been made to exactly match your feet, you may never want to go back to off-the-rack shoes. No more blisters, no more “breaking in” a pair of shoes, no more tired feet.

4. Price.
A pair of bespoke shoes from various renowned shoemakers will set you back anywhere between EUR 1.500 and EUR 10.000, depending on brand, style and leather. Those shoes are very good, no doubt about that. But can you afford it? We can’t, honestly.

We can offer our products a decent price because we have taken out all of the middlemen, from raw material buyers, export agents, distributors, sales representatives, to private equity funds and shareholders.

We control the entire supply chain, your shoes come straight from the craftsman to your feet.

A handcrafted product requires a lot of care and attention. Manufacturing of a pair of bespoke shoes can involve 200 steps on up to 30 individual pieces of leather. Therefore, we can’t deliver the shoes in a couple of weeks but it will take approximately 3-4 months, depending on the amount of orders we have as well.

And yes, it is worth the wait!

We take care in assuring your bespoke shoes are to your full satisfaction, by carefully measuring your feet and taking all your wishes into account.

However, if your bespoke shoes do not fit as per the measurements taken, we will do all we can to make up for whatever has gone wrong by either making a small alteration or making an entire new pair.

Please refer to our Warranty and Returns policy here.

The Goodyear welt process is the traditional method for the manufacture of men’s dress shoes, taking its name from the inventor. It has nothing to do with the tyre manufacturer.

In a Goodyear welt, a strip of leather is stitched to the upper and insole of a shoe, as an attach-point for the sole.

The Goodyear welt is highly regarded for a number of reasons including being relatively waterproof by not allowing water to get into the insole due to the welt-sole construction, the relative ease in which the sole can be replaced, and the fact that the shoe can last up to 20 years or longer depending on the treatment and condition of the upper.

You will receive an order confirmation for every order via email, to which you can reply.

Yes we do!

However we do not have models in our collection specially designed for women.

Female customers that have ordered bespoke shoes with us, mainly chose brogues and Chelsea boots.
