Headquartered in Austria and made in Romania, all Saint Crispin’s shoes are handcrafted by a small team of artisans. Their shoes are quite possibly as close to a bespoke fit as you will find in a ready to wear shoe. While that may sound like a big statement, in our opinion these shoes are top flight all the way.
The attention to detail is evident in all aspects of the shoes, not least of which is the fit. Saint Crispin’s designs their shoes with human engineering in mind. The heels are canted, which means the outside of the heel is slightly lower than the inside, as is the top line under the ankles, thus cradling your foot’s natural resting position.
The company’s business model is based on custom shoe orders, as such you will be offered a wide variety of models, leathers, and fits including individualized lasts. Your shoes will be delivered to you in approximately 8-10 weeks.
The split toe is a classic shoe that’s highly versatile, as it looks organic with suits as well as denim. Saint Crispin’s model 508HA is no exception. We’ve made it on the chiseled last in medium brown calfskin, which makes it stand out from your typical dark brown dress shoes. Plus, the handsewing along the vamp and toe make this pair particularly special.

Once again Saint Crispin’s takes a classic style and makes it their own. The sweeping lines of the 522B Oxford give it an elegance to match the calf from which it’s made. This is a classic shoe, but it’s far from boring.

Chukka boots are easy to wear in a variety of situations. We’ve made Saint Crispin’s model 524 in a lush brown suede that pairs well with nearly anything. The Vibram soles make these chukkas perfect for inclement weather.
St. Crispin’s 539 loafer is an elegant take on the classic penny loafer. Made in light brown calfskin with hand sewing along the vamp, they pair well with anything from jeans to a suit. These are shoes that’ll last you forever and never go out of style.
We’ve done the 403CP in shrunken calf, which is a special leather that’s exclusive to Saint Crispin’s. The distinct texture is created by steaming the hides, which causes them to shrink as they dry. It creates the rugged yet refined look that makes these boots unique.
