There’s colour on the trees and a chill in the air, so it’s safe to say that Autumn has officially arrived in London. There’s no better way to welcome a new season than with a new pair of shoes to keep your feet warm as the cold snap hits. You’ll be spoilt for choice, because there are several shoemakers in the Mayfair area.
Men’s and women’s footwear.
Crockett and Jones, located in the heart of the bustling Burlington Arcade. Handcraft a stunning range of men’s and women’s footwear for all occasions. They stock a wide range of stylish shoes, from brogues to boots, so you’re bound to find something suitable.
Specialise in orthopaedic footwear.
James Taylor and Son on Paddington Street, on the other hand, specialise in orthopaedic footwear. So if you’re looking for comfortable, long lasting shoes they’ll help you find your perfect pair. Alternatively, if you’re more of an outdoor explorer, Orvis. They do a great range of robust footwear that you can wear no matter what the weather (or terrain!) is like.
One of London’s finest traditional cobblers.
If you’re still in love with last year’s winter shoes, but they need a bit of TLC, you can also visit Sole-man on White Horse Street. One of London’s finest traditional cobblers. Sole-man undertakes shoe repairs, suede and leather cleaning, zip replacements, tailoring and alterations. They will be able to put a spring back in the step of your favourite pair of shoes in no time.
