Our Made to Order Collection is here to fulfill the pillars upon which John Doe Shoes was created.
Goodyear welted as always, but you can't put the cart before the horse. It doesn't matter if your shoes are goodyear welted if the leather uppers come from a crappy leather. So we only use the best leathers in the world. Scroll through our list of available leathers, you'll will only find the top tanneries in the world. You won't see the dubious terms "premium leather", "italian leather", "imported materials", "authentic full grain leather" and so on. We aim to be among the best shoemakers of the world, even if we are priced so low. To achieve that we have to work with the best in class and that's what we are doing.
You won't have to offer us your first born to get your hands on one of these shoes. Do we like to make money? Of course we do, but we don't like to rip off our customers. We are a lean company, no staggering CEO bonuses, and no giant billboards on Times Square. We don't run sales, so we don't need ludicrous margins to pay for unsold inventories and excesses. We want to brng back the days when you could get a well made garment that's gonna last for years for a fair price. Say no to fads and overpriced garbage meant to last for months so you only end up buying more.
Our weakest link so far. We have failed many times to offer a reliable and constant amount of our best seller shoes. (I'm talking to you Bonucci Oxford) Many of you have grown tired of not finding your desired style and size available. As a small company growing organically we have struggled to meet the amount of shoes we could sell, we are working on that. In the meantime, with our MTO collection you will be able to choose your style, size and sole. You select your desired options, we make it and in a month or less (it will usually be 2-3 weeks) your customized shoes will be ready to ship. 2-3 weeks guys! That's just the shipping time of some MTO shoes from around the world.
