Roberts and Hassett footwear: A leather addict’s dream

If you haven’t taken the plunge yet on a good pair of leather shoes, and you want to, you should probably go all out with a pair of Roberts & Hassett shoes from Australia. Made from local kangaroo leather, the boots are hand-welted with hand-spun linen threads and hand-stitched outsoles. I know, it’s a lot of hands, but you wouldn’t want it any other way.

The actual process of making the shoes is so special it’s been given its own name: the Bespoke Process. There’s a consultation and 10 point foot measure up, a leather and style chat, a sample shoe, and finally, a fitting of your swanky new shoes.

Eternal happiness does have a price, though. Starting at AU$1200, if you’re wondering.
