The By Request service offers customers the freedom
to create their own unique pair
of John Lobb handmade shoes or boots, specific to their personal style.
Expert advice and guidance is on hand from our teams, ensuring every detail is realised to the customers specification.
Explore the archive of over 100 original designs, spanning oxfords, derbys, buckles, loafers and boot styles. Whether inspired by iconic John Lobb classics or more contemporary iterations, select your desired model and begin the process of personalisation to fulfil your individual needs and wishes.
Choose from a wealth of full grain leathers and suede options including John Lobb signatures such as the rich patinas of Museum Calf, uniquely textured Grain Calf and exotic skins such as Crocodile and Lizard.
Once type of leather is specified, select from the vast spectrum of colour option offered which best reflect your personal style. Combine contrasting colours for a bold statement or keep to tonal shades for understated appeal.
Ensure the perfect fit through guidance and measurement of your foot in store, helping to decide the best width option.
Combining over 150 years of boot making heritage, all John Lobb Goodyear-welted shoes are made in Northampton, England. Each pair is created in a process involving over 190 steps, making each customer’s imagination a reality.
Adapt components to suit your personality. Options of Gold, Rose Gold, Anthracite and Palladium finishes are available on buckles, providing the opportunity for individual flair as well as refined elegance.
Whether inclined towards the characteristics of traditional leather soles or the functionality of a weather resistant rubber sole, with a range of options offered for both, choose whichever option best suits your lifestyle.
The individuality of the shoes created is finalised with the customer’s personal initials through our monogramming service.
