Ivan Crivellaro - Bespoke Shoe Maker
I found Ivan on the Facebook page of GQ Italia writer Angelo Flaccavento. Ivan was a paradigm shift as far as I could see, fusing art and shoes together in the most unorthodox way. We subsequently commissioned him to make these Saldavor Dali and butterfly inspired beauties below.

Andy Murphy From Foster And Son, London
Not many companies can claim that they have a combined business life of 430 years but that's how many years of trading have been conducted by Foster & Son of London. The company continues to make bespoke shoes above it's London store today whilst also selling ready to wear.

Justin FitzPatrick - Shoe blogger, now designer.
He started his career shining shoes in Gieves & Hawkes but now he's not only one of the most respected names in the shoe blogging world but he's also just begun his own range of shoes. Justin FitzPatrick is just getting warmed up but it's still worth reading this round up he gives on his taste in shoes.

Landry Lacour -Patina Artist
Landry Lacour takes patina to a whole new level of art. His commissions are making waves across the world and don't be surprised if he is soon in command of his own line of shoes.

Andrew McDonald - An Australian Asset
Andrew McDonald was a cutter at Berluti before he moved back to Australia to start his own business. He now operates from Sydney's Strand Arcade and is a very rare commodity for Australia given there are so few people who can craft a shoe, let alone to the standard made by McDonald.
