Where to get Custom Shoes

Hi All,

Does anyone know where I could get a pair of custom shoes made within a semi-reasonable distance of Zurich (like anywhere in Europe)? I have a rare shoe size and I'm fed up with either cowboy boots (made wide for some reason) or shoes meant for diabetic octogenarians. Thank you.

Re: Where to get Custom Shoes

Does gender make a difference?

We've had some experience with a couple of shoemakers in Zurich but the best one we found is here in Basel:

Hope this helps.

Re: Where to get Custom Shoes

Bringing this back up...

Can anyone recommend a custom shoe maker for women's shoes in the greater Zürich area?

The 'foot specialist' places I've been to really only offer ortho shoes, or (semi) custom shoes in casual, mostly masculine, styles.

I've always had trouble finding shoes that fit due to my duck feet (narrow heel, wide toe.) But lately it's gotten to be downright impossible as my right foot swells up as the day goes on. I often have to buy two pairs of shoes in differing sizes, wearing one on my left foot, the larger size on my right. Fine for less expensive casual shoes, but once I get into 'decent dress shoe' range it's getting pretty pricey. Perhaps custom shoes wouldn't be much more expensive...

So any suggestions gratefully received.
