Talk with Tod.

He is doing both his hand-stitched and a special new line --- which looks really good value!

In no particular order
Morgan & Andrea Hubbard http://www.plantagenetshoes.freeserve.co.uk/
Sarah Juniper http://www.sarahjuniper.co.uk/
Kevin Garlick http://www.kmgarlick-shoemaker.co.uk/
Andy Burke http://www.andyburke.f2s.com/
Todd Booth http://www.foxblade.co.uk/

Not tried all of them
Sarah very good but not cheap, but then you gets what you pays for, made my late 17thC mules which have become my 21stC house slippers they are that comfy.
My 18thC shoes are Morgans as are my 15th, 16th, 17thC and again dead comfy and well made which is important when you spend lots of time wearing them
Mem sahib swears by Kevin Garlick shoes and has many pairs, he did my Nap half boots too.

That's my score to date. Three. I haven't killed anybody for years, and don't intend to ever again.'

Andy Burke, top notch shoes and boots, moderate prices.

Has made all my re-enactment shoes.

I've passed all the info above to my ladies, and the decisions are now mostly out of my hands, thank goodness.
