'Lodger' was a shoe brand started in 2007 and taken over by Lutwyche bespoke, London, in 2011, after which the Lodger name was dropped.
The shoes actually say 'Lodger by Lutwyche' in them, so i'm not sure if these shoes were made during a cross-over phase, or if Lodger was a 'line' of (or owned by) Lutwyche all along.

Anyway, these shoes originally retailed for around £550, but some unsold stock has turned up on ebay for £79 a pair:

They're not strictly hand-made as the seller states; they're Goodyear (machine) welted and equivalent quality to a pair of Crockett & Jone's or Church's that currently sell for around £350. They're almost certainly made by one of the big name Northampton factories, though i'm not sure which one.

I meant that there are no auctions/articles at the link for sale. I assumed they have sold out already.
