Foster & Son Visits on Friday, March 31, 2017
Sterling & Burke always enjoys the visits from our friends on Savile Row and this week we have the pleasure of hosting Andrew Murphy and Jon Spencer from Foster & Son.
Established in 1840, Foster & Son is one of the oldest and most respected custom shoe and bootmakers in the World with a reputation for refined "West End" style shoemaking.
To say the process of creating custom footwear is time consuming would be an understatement. It is also absolutely fascinating. We learned a bit on a trip to London not too long ago. Jon Spencer is the head last maker, creating the wooden molds that the shoes are built around. With exacting precision for the intricacies of your foot and step.
Although their heritage is bespoke shoe and bootmaking for men, they have created a stunning line of slippers for women as well. They have a color assortment that will make you swoon and they are happy to embroider anything on the front. Get creative ladies!
Call us if you would like more information about these beautiful shoes and boots. These are a truly wonderful addition to your wardrobe!
