All of Wildsmith shoes are made in England, it is something we all feel strongly about. All of the Wildsmith leather goods and accessories are also made in England. The shoes are made at the home of English shoemaking Northamptonshire and as such are Goodyear welted constructed using only the finest calf leathers and English tanned leather soles.
This is the picture that made me go for this lovely Monk Strap shoe.
I used the chat on the Wildsmith website to check the sizing and widths which took only a few minutes.
Received the shoes 24 hours after they shipped and was very surprised at the quality of the packaging. There was a promotion with free shoetrees (double-barreled with black wood and brass with a white plaque with the Wildsmith logo).
Un-boxing was a pure pleasure, including a smart shoehorn and a tin of English beeswax. The shoes had just been polished which in my opinion is a first! The meticulous crafting is apparent and the construction is flawless.
The assembly and stitching are impeccable and the sole work is really astonishing. The model and references are handwritten inside the shoe, lined with
Simply a stunning shoe!
