Materials and methods The Walk custom-made shoes are 100% handmade using the best English, Italian and French leather. The heels come from Germany while the soles are made from durable Argentine leather and are sewn by hand following the Goodyear method, the traditional way of making classic gentlemen’s shoes.
Artisan shoemakers The Walk custom-made shoes are entirely handmade in India. Traditional shoemaking was introduced to local artisans under British rule. Today, this tradition continues with a handful of artisan shoemakers. The Walk is proud to work with a small, fourth-generation family company that still manufactures custom-made shoes by hand. One of the founders of The Walk discovered this family company while living in India and since the founding of the shop in The Hague, regular trips to the studio in India have continued.
Price The Walk custom-made shoes cost between €400 and €600. The cost for measuring and making the lasts involve a one-off fee of €100. Delivery time is around 10 to 12 weeks.
