I stumbled across Lodger shoes on a blog a couple of weeks ago, and took a look at their range at their shop on Clifford Street in London. If you go looking for it, they're in the Lutwyche & Lodger store. I missed it the first time I went past. The Lodger style seems to be classic with a bit of a twist, in both English and Italian styles. They're benchmade in Northampton (I think), and seem pretty solid. Every month they do a limited release style. The current is a dark blue suede desert boot with a traditional leather sole. There's an archive of what's gone before on their website The shoes range from around £300 to £500 for a pair, and are bench made. They're available in an enormous number of sizes and widths, going all the way up to 20. :eeek: That's good to know, because at a mere 13, I find it tricky to get something in my size.
