But there’s always the exception…
Today, UrbanDaddy filled us in on a lesser-known bespoke cobbler named George Esquivel. Operating in Los Angeles at *B.spoke*, Esquivel builds shoes from a hand-measured footprint with a choice of high-end leathers and designs, like the skulls below.
We’re big fans of bespokery—it’s hard to do better than a perfect fit—but we were under the impression that a perfectly fitted shoe required a trip to London, or even Hong Kong. Apparently it’s a lot closer than we thought.
