Gentleman's Shoes

Quality hand made shoes, for the man who values quality and craftsmanship.

Our shoes are truly classic styles, made using traditional techniques. Every pair of shoes we make is made to order, hand crafted to exacting specifications by our master craftsmen. We pride ourselves on the care and attention to detail we put into each pair of shoes we make, and inside each pair of shoes the craftsman or craftsmen who have collaborated on the pair will have signed their initials, as their promise of quality to you.

Our designs are timeless, but that doesn’t mean that they lack character. Kelpis has always prided itself in designing a range of shoes for individuals who wanted to express their individuality and personality through what they wear.

We have a wide variety of materials, finishes, and the creativity to create truly custom shoes to stand out in the world of mass produced conformity,allowing you to express who you are to the world, whilst also being comfortable, practical, stylish and durable.

Please note, as we make every pair of shoes to order, we don’t keep a store room full ready made shoe. The shoes shown to illustrate styles and materials which are photographed and shown on the website range in age, whilst some of these are examples of shoes made recently, some of the photographs are taken of shoes which we have been using as an example for up to 30 years.

The product details for each product on the website shows the date we began making that specific shoe design, and the approximate year of production for the example shown in the photographs.

Shoes can either be ordered “made to measure” where they are made to a standard last, based on an accurate European shoe size, or alternatively for a perfect fit, you can select the size option “Bespoke”. Bespoke fitting costs €200 extra, as it involves us getting precise foot measurements from you, produce a custom last (rather than a standard last) to your exact dimensions, designing the pattern of the shoes to fit precisely and to ensure the best fit possible arrange a trial fitting by you before completing your shoes.

For a pair of bespoke shoes, we either use the wonders of modern technology (international shipping and video conference), or agree to meet you face to face, depending on location and schedule to arrange to taking the precise measurements necessary to start work on your shoes and the trial fitting.
