Now, what I’m about to tell you is not just a consignment of elderly shoemakers or, as some would have it, a load of old cobblers.
Fact is, though, I’ve come across something a bit special for the chap who likes a bit of quality in the shoe department, but doesn’t have the wherewithal to patronise John Lobb in St. James’s or Gaziano & Girling just round the corner in “The Row” when looking for new bespoke shoes.
So, how about a pair of bespoke shoes made to your own design and on a choice of last, but for a price far enough South of the cost of a decent pair of Church’s to leave you with enough change to fund a celebratory martini at The Ritz: sound interesting? Well, let me introduce you to “UNDANDY,” who’ll make you a tasty pair of bespoke “ones-and-twos” to pretty much your own design.
Have a look at their little video.
Here’s what you do to create your bespoke shoes or boots.
- Choose one of three lasts to suit your style of bespoke shoes.
- Customise your creation – you can be sober, funky or downright outrageous: how about a pair of brogues in red, white and blue leather, with green laces and red stitching? No, wouldn’t be for me, either, but if that’s what you fancy, then that’s what you can have.
- Specify your size – the shoes aren’t made to measure, but you can specify different sized shoes for each foot.
- Pay your dosh, wait a couple of weeks, and Hey Presto, you are the owner of your own uniquely stylish shoes or boots. You can even design yourself a pair of sneakers if that’s what you fancy……but, of course, it isn’t, is it. Is it?
So, why not give bespoke shoes a try – go ahead and Create your own shoes!
Or if you need some inspiration, take a look at some of their shoes first –

Something a tad more restrained, perhaps? How about these, then.
Or how about a bit of Italianate decadence?
Or these, probably my absolute favorites.
The thing is, you can please yourself, and isn’t that really what style is? “UNDANDY” say that there are Over 156 billion combinations for you to choose from – don’t feel you have to look at them all, but there should be enough to keep you occupied for an hour or two.
I just think this is a brilliant concept for any chap interested in finding stylish shoes that are just that bit different, so why not take a look at what they have to offer and let yourself become CONSPICUOUSLY INCONSPICUOUS!
