I have been wearing leather dress shoes for a couple years now. I started with Allen Edmond’s wingtips but I found the quality was not as good as advertised. My Allen Edmond’s black wingtips are in terrible shape now. I will have to get them refurbished once I get back to the US in a year. They only lasted over a year so I am disappointed.
Last May I passed through Hong Kong and found Zee’s Leatherware. They had some good reviews online so I decided to see if I could get a pair of black wingtips made. The are located right behind the Sheraton so they were easy to find.
The shoes take about a week to make so I had mine shipped to Kazakhstan. They fitted me on the first day and checked them the next. Wow, what amazing shoes once I received them. I wear these a lot now. Yes, I have a lot of shoes, but these are my favorite. They fit really well but took about a month to break in.
I have some other leather shoes I will review soon as well. Getting custom bespoke shoes made is a must. These were affordable, a little more than $120 USD.
