Bespoke Shoes

Why Spend More? Bespoke Shoes Analyzed

Bespoke shoes, regardless of where they come from, are unquestionably expensive. After all, there’s quite a lot of precise craftsmanship that goes into creating the perfect pair of bespoke shoes. With all of the expense involved, it only seems natural to want to avoid them altogether and just stick with something from the regular store that costs a fraction of the price. However, there are questions that prospective buyers need to ask themselves before making that choice.

Foot Pain

One of the leading causes that drives people to considering bespoke shoes is foot pain. This is for very good reason: most “regular shoes” are the leading culprits behind foot pain. Ill-fitting, poorly made shoes create a large amount of pressure points across the foot that force our feet to conform to a shape that’s very unnatural and doesn’t suit our own natural curves. Besides the day long discomfort, especially if wearers have to be on their feet all day, this creates a large amount of musculature problems throughout the legs, hips, and back.

Bespoke shoes ensure the design matches the wearer’s foot perfectly. This should greatly reduce the amount of foot pain wearers experience throughout the day and gradually, over time, this pain should be eliminated altogether.


Some people simply just don’t fit into regular shoes. Shoes can run too narrow, require more space in the toes than what’s typically afforded, have too much space in the heel that causes excessive slide, and different sorts of scenarios that just make shoes simply not fit. This again needn’t be the case: the perfect fit is out there in a bespoke shoe, which is designed to the wearer’s exact size.


Unfortunately, wearers will also have to weigh the benefits of wearing a bespoke shoe against their cost. Yes, they cost quite a bit more than “off the shelf” shoes, but their benefits are simply too great to not consider them altogether just because of their cost. They could very well be the last shoe a wearer ever needs for quite some time given that they’re made to such precise, high-quality standards.


Do wearers care about what goes on their feet? If they’re in chronic pain and the fit is always bad, then there’s no question that they would and this question is pretty much answered in the blink of an eye. However, what about for others who are perhaps not in as much pain or do find fits to be satisfactory? It’s certainly a question worth asking.
