Francis Waplinger offers Made-to-Measure and Bespoke footwear for men and women.
All shoes are hand lasted and hand welted in Mr. Waplinger's studio. Only the finest European and American leathers are used. Each pair of shoes is constructed according to the clients specifications using traditional Old World techniques.
Trained in Italy, including an apprenticeship with famed Florentine shoemaker Roberto Ugolini and a stateside apprenticeship with Hungarian Master Shoemaker Marcell Mrsan, Francis strives to bring the craftsmanship, quality and flare of European shoemaking to the United States.
