Based in York, UK, the Last Shoemaker was created by shoemakers Allan Donnelly and Payson Muller. The goal was simple: produce the highest quality minimalist shoes on the market. Cutting no corners, we take pride in crafting every shoe with unrivalled quality. From Zero-Drops to Fiddlewaists, the Last Shoemaker is committed to producing the best pair of minimalist shoes you’ve ever owned.
Specializing in Bespoke
For those looking for the absolute best fit possible, we are delighted to offer customers bespoke made-to-order shoes upon request.
The production process begins with Payson, based in the UK, attending to customers, taking measurements and fittings before developing a pair of bespoke, wooden shoe lasts. In collaboration with the customer, a shoe design is created. The lasts and drawings are then sent to Allan to produce the design by creating shoe uppers in his purpose-built workshop to the exacting requirements of this bespoke product. The finishing of the shoes is then done by Payson, hand-sewing the soles before the final fitting with the customer.
