Why Custom Shoes?

At Anatoly & Sons, we give you full control of the customization process from heel to last. Choose from a multitude of styles, color combinations, and leather options. Decide how you want your shoe to be constructed and designed. We use two different stitching methods to attach the sole to the upper part of the shoe for a solid construction that will last you many years to come.

Design the perfect Shoe

When you visit our store, ask about the program. We have a number of try-ons at the store to guarantee a good fit, as well as a software program that will allow you to design your shoe in real time.

Blake Stitch

If you're looking for a daily shoe that will provide you with maximum comfort, then a Blake Stitched shoe is for you! The construction of a Blake stitched shoe is simple: the insole is sewn directly to the outsole. Although not as durable as the Goodyear Welt, it makes up for it in its lightweight and sleek aesthetics. And while it doesn't have the added padding of a goodyear shoe, it's easily the most popular because blake stitched shoes are less stiff and more flexible.

Goodyear Welt

The Goodyear Welt is top-of-the-line in terms of sturdiness because a strip of leather (the welt) is placed between the sole and the upper, giving it an added cushion and securing it to the last with two stitches. The empty space created by the welt is filled with cork for comfort and will conform to your foot overtime. A Goodyear welted shoe can easily be resoled at any shoe cobbler. It's water resistant due to double stitching and, if you take care of it, it will last you a lifetime.
