Stylish footwear available with our custom orthotic service


James Taylor & Son offer a range of stylish ready-to-wear shoes that deliver a combination of timeless design, traditional construction techniques and the highest quality materials.

These are beautifully made shoes that compare favourably in quality with the best that Jermyn Street can offer.  All are made of the highest quality leathers and suedes.  Also, in line with all the top English footwear, they are of a Goodyear welted construction, offering great durability and ease of repair.  Many styles include a soling choice of either traditional leather or a softer Vibram studded rubber.

A unique aspect of our ready-to-wear service is that we can offer you a range of custom orthotic features that can be built-into these classic designs.  This allows you to have the comfort and therapeutic support of custom insoles without compromising the fit or style of your shoes.  It is absolutely ideal for any customer who needs a classic shoes with extra padding, custom arch supports or metatarsal pads, but cannot afford our bespoke shoemaking service. 

Our customisation service is currently available at our shop in Marylebone by appointment only.  It will shortly be available online and at our National fitting centres.  Please enquire if you would be interested in these options.
