Gilbert and Bailey takes the made to order shoemaking to another level with their new webshop. Here you can pick and chose from a wide range of lasts, models, details and materials. The unique shoe building software on the website makes it possible to preview the shoe while you are designing it. All of their production is undertaken by hand to the most exacting standards which allows us to personalise the shoes and add bespoke elements usually unavailable in modern ready to wear footwear. An order will take 6-8 weeks to complete and you will receive updates of how your shoes are progressing.
The company was founded in 2016 and is based in Northampton, the home of English shoe making, drawing on hundreds of years of skill and local know-how from the local tradition and fine craftmanship.
