Norman Vilalta, the bespoke shoemaker out of Barcelona who also has his own RTW line, is visiting London the weekend of the 23rd-24th of September to showcase his shoes and take orders for those of you inclined to support his brand.
For those that don’t know Norman’s history is long in the shoe industry, training at Stefano Bemer about 12 years ago to starting his own bespoke workshop in Barcelona to just recently starting his own RTW line that has had tremendous success with patina’d suedes and styles that are very much apparent of his own character and design ethos. I love what he is doing because it is a fresh of breath air that no one else had really touched upon and while different to what is on offer anywhere seems to be taking the industry by storm.
So for those of you that have see his shoes online but never had the chance to appreciate them in person, now is your chance to visit him shortly on Savile Row where he will be hosting his first London Trunk Show at Stowers London, 13 Savile Row (bottom ground), in a couple of weekends’ time.
For any questions please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Also, just a quick note to say that our (J.FitzPatrick Footwear) button boot pre-sale will end on Sunday night. What you get for taking part of the pre-sale is a free pair of alderwood shoe trees and the guarantee that you get your size ordered when the stock arrives, no later than a few weeks time. Otherwise if you miss out, the new stock won’t come back in until Christmas time. Also remember that button hooks are now included with all button boot purchases.
A great weekend to all,
Justin, “The Shoe Snob”
