The Beezy Bailey willy shoe in GQ magazine

GQ magazine May 2010

Customised men's shoes

Article in the March 2010 GQ magazine. The article features Justin Rhodes wearing the pair of blue suede shoes that I made for him.

Shoes for men

Since January of this year I started designing men's shoes.
The first style in the range is called 'David'. They are made in grey-blue suede, oxblood brown leather, black leather and my favourite, black patent leather.
These shoes are best worn with out socks. The leather lining I have used is very good with absorbing smells and allow your feet to breathe. Assuming of course that your feet are clean when putting the shoes on.

The first pair of men's shoes I did was actually last year, when Justin Rhodes of Whatiftheworld gallery asked if I could customise him a pair of shoes, by adapting one of my existing styles into a men's shoe. The first pair that I made for him was in black patent. The next two pairs in a blue and orange suede and then a resent pair in a jean blue leather.
