Gilbert & Bailey is a shoe manufacturer with a desire to merge the quality of old English bespoke makers whilst incorporating the colour, vibrancy and technical developments of modern times.
Our design software has been created to allow our customers the freedom to design their own hand-welted footwear.
The shoes are entirely hand crafted, a process that on even the most simple of design takes no less than 8 weeks and over 200 steps to complete. Our lasts and patterns reflect the traditions of old with a modern, streamlined elegance that makes them suitable for the most striking contemporary and also the classic, timeless designs.
The shaped waists, dropped top lines and other subtle bespoke touches raise what would otherwise be a perfectly good and functional English-made shoe into an exceptional handcrafted work of art.
Because the shoes are hand-crafted, you are given the unique luxury of being able to design your own.
Once you've chosen the shape, you can choose the style of toe...
...followed by the fabric and colour.
...and that's just the half of it! When they mean design your own, they mean design your own which is why Gilbert & Bailey is the go to place for luxury shoes that really make a statement.
Whether you want to look the business on your wedding day, at work or day to today, Gilbert & Bailey epitomise everything a classic British shoe manufacturer should offer through their highly skilled craftsmanship, mixed with a customisable offer which cements them as a driving force behind the future of fashion.
