Foster & Son Bespoke Shoes Return Wednesday

Andy Murphy from Foster & Son returns Wednesday for an all-day bespoke shoe event. Foster & Son has produced one of the very finest London-made shoes since 1840. We are also pleased to announce that last-maker Jon Spencer will also be on hand for the event.

See below for photos from their last trunk show at Wingtip, when Wingtip manager Michael Alzona was fitted for a personal last. Commenting on that experience, Michael said, “Having my feet completely measured was amazing. Andrew actually hand-traced the profile of my foot on paper and took measurements of the width and instep. Knowing you will have a fully bespoke pair of shoes to fit your feet is a true luxury.”

Drop-ins are welcome, but you may schedule an appointment through
