There have been many changes in the way we do things in the last few generations. Digital innovations have completely revolutionised the way we communicate with each other, engineering advances have changed our manufacturing processes, and online commerce has made it easier than ever to spend money.
Though all of these changes are wonderful, that’s not to say there isn’t still benefit to the old way of doing things, too.
We think there’s most definitely still a place in the modern world for slower, more personalised experiences. One of the ways this type of experience can excel is in bespoke clothing and footwear. Instead of buying off the peg, choosing to go bespoke can give you a much more enjoyable buying experience, as well as a product that really is exactly what you wanted.
If you’ve always been tempted by the idea of bespoke shoes, here are three signs you may be ready to make the leap.
1. You have a clear idea of what you want, but cant find it
Shoe shopping can become a frustrating experience when you know exactly what you want but can’t find it. It may be that you’ve dreamed up your ideal pair of shoes, or it could be that you’re trying to replace an older pair that you had and loved.
2. You’re frustrated about fit
If you happen to have feet that perfectly fit into off the shelf shoes, then you’re very lucky (and a rarity!) Many of us have feet that don’t quite conform to the shape of the shoes available in the shops.
3. You want to experience a different kind of customer service
It’s so easy to buy shoes in our modern world. In many cases, you can do so online and don’t even need to make a trip to the shop at all. Though this can be very convenient, it may not offer the traditional customer service that you’re looking for.
