"It's not what you do in them, it's how you feel when you do it"

The Bespoke Shoe Experience

Welcome to Hand Dyed Shoe Co. where you can expect to create and receive a world class pair of handmade, artisan shoes designed by you.

When you book your private fitting at one of our unique, hidden away shoe emporiums, we will welcome you with a beer before we get to work on co-creating your unique, hand dyed shoe design. Our passionate 'Shoe Guys' will guide you through the endless options available to you, from the last, colour, texture, patina, sole and even our exclusive monogram service where you can add those precious, personal touches.

We offer lots of style advice and plenty of shoe education - what works well with what - and we will even present your design using our incredible 3D digital technology - showing you your design before any of our Italian calf skin leather are even cut.

Our ten-point made-to-measure shoe fitting will ensure we have all the measurements we need to begin your craft, including length, width and instep.

"This was my 40th present from my wife as I had been recommended on LinkedIn, I also like unique experiences and items.. this certainly lived up to my expectations! I ended up buying a second pair! Durham is a great city to visit and the Hotel Indigo and location was excellent as well as visiting Ushaw and Hand Dyed Shoe Co... I look forward to visiting Leeds."
