All about shoes

  • • Matthias initially trained as a tax consultant
  • • His own large shoe size inspired him to make bespoke shoes
  • • He and partner Martin give talks on shoe care on cruise liners

Matthias Vickermann turned to bespoke shoemaking after deciding that his first career, in tax consulting, wasn't his true passion. Having rather large feet (UK 14/EU 49), Matthias had always struggled to find fashionable, high quality shoes, so he decided to take an apprenticeship with a master shoemaker in Baden-Baden. In 2004 he opened a workshop in the town with his partner Martin Stoya, aimed at both clients looking for bespoke shoes and anybody else interested in the craft of shoemaking or shoe care. These days, Matthias and Martin are well known for giving talks on shoemaking all over the world. In the workshop itself, considered one of the most beautiful in Germany, they regularly offer shoe care workshops for individuals or small groups.

Double Monk

This pair of shoes was handmade using dark brown suede leather and orange stitching. Small, narrow buckles enabled Vickermann & Stoya to create an elegant but unusual model. The Double Monk is also available with an extra front cap or as a longwing shoe with a straight, long line on the side.
