Eric Cook English bespoke shoemaker

Erik Cook, old school, English bespoke shoemaker who knew Mr. Nikolaus Tuzcek, is an independent, one man operation bespoke shoemaker. Mr. Cook has no web site, information is scarce about him. He relies on mouth to mouth method of advertising. It is said that it can take up to a year for him to get the shoes done.

"Not cheap or fast but possibly the best.” Luckily Cook's also very kind with his time and explained in detail to this layman what he does. Sourced from Finch's quarterly

I like the design of the two pairs of shoes depicted below, a pity that I can not crawl more information on the gent.

Next time will blog about another independent one man operation bespoke shoemaker. Until then enjoy Mr. Cook's work.
