What are the main criteria that you look for in terms of footwear? Style? Comfort? Practicality? Craftsmanship? One of a kind designs? Or all of the above?
Most people are quite particular when it comes to shoes and footwear. And they should be. Shoes are an important part of your day. This is especially true if you lead an active lifestyle, you are always on the go or you need to be standing on your feet for long periods throughout the day. Sore and uncomfortable feet can make for a tired and cranky person. It is important to get shoes that are a perfect fit, not only in terms of the cut but also ones that fit into your style and lifestyle.
Sure, there are plenty of shoe brands and shoe stores in the market to choose from. So many that you can spend an entire day hunting for the one that suits you best. But why settle for shoes that are mass-produced when you have a pair that are unique and original?
After a bit of digging around I found a brand which really suited my style and fit the specification for handmade shoes. It is clear that the craftsmanship in each pair of J Shoes is given the utmost importance. Their shoes are made using fine leather materials and are hand treated and even hand stitched, making sure that no two leather treatments would look the same. These original touches ensure that each pair of shoes is exclusive.
I believe that individuality and character should be celebrated and this is shown in each design that J Shoes offer. Their collection includes a practical range of shoes and boots for men and heels, flats and boots for women. The style is classy and elegant to be used to work and yet still maintain a casual feel to be used on other outings. This really sits will with my style and I find I can wear them with a number of different outfits.
From its small beginnings in Leicestershire UK, J Shoes has now emerged as a strong brand around the world. It is available in Europe, North America and Asia and can also be purchased online through a number of retailers. Despite their growing success it seems to me that they are continuing to provide quality hand-made products, and haven't yet had to resort to mass-producing their shoes to keep up with demand.
