A long standing customer of ours sent this picture of a pair of Foster bespoke shoes we made for him in 1998. Originally they were dark tan in colour and we are amazed to see what time had done to them. This customer likes a high shine on his toe caps and we think it looks marvellous.
We asked him, ‘do you take special care of these shoes?’, his answer was uncompromising; ‘of course not, shoes are made for wearing, they are out in the rain regularly and I’ve been known to trample across fields in them.’
So, there you are, rain, mud, sunshine and polish!
