Tips for self-measurement

Though we improve your fit on subsequent orders based on your comments, correct self-measurement will ensure maximum satisfaction of your first order.

To postscript the order form...(1) Pen must be kept at 90 degree. (2) Keeping in mind the ball of the foot is the widest point of the foot on the upper part helps. (3) Instep should measure the highest point of the foot. Both (2) and (3) are measurement around the foot, as opposed to across.

Scan or fax should be at 100% of the tracing.

"One pointer for those who have, are thinking about ordering: you can keep the pen at 90 degrees by taping it to the spine of a book (or similar)." - Member from an online forum

Introducing Schubert Custom

Schubert Custom provides shoes custom-made for your feet that won't break the bank. "Lasts" are made for each customer.

The soles are handstitched onto the shoe, a sign of quality. All of our shoes are made of fine calfskin. There's a self-measurement process that guides through the customer.

Making of truly bespoke shoes is a handwork-intense process that takes 5-7 weeks. Usually in the $1,000++ range, we're pleased to offer the product for a fraction of the price.

Order form can be found here. For my past purchase and sales reliability, click here for eBay feedback. Current prices (US$) are $215 and $230 for boots.
