Frankie handstitched shoes

These are the nicest shoes I’ve seen in ages. A leather moccasin with fully formed removable footbed, a two-part rubber sole (geddit?) unit set into leather lower and heel. Waxed cotton laces and leather lining.

For £129 you get a shoe that’s hand-stitched throughout with waxed cotton… to make each pair unique. A bit on the pricey side, but you get what you pay for with shoes. Available from Oi Polloi.

    Had a pair of those in my hands (in that very shop) last week. Not bad – the older versions apparently had no base – so you walked on suede or leather. The new ones have a rubber sole, so more long lasting – especially in autumn.
