Foster & Son Black Arlington Calf Tassel Loafers *with shoe trees* (NOS)
We are excited to be one of the first stockists of Foster & Son’s new line of in-house made Ready-to-Wear shoes. Looking back on 179 years of creating bespoke shoes, and using vintage bespoke samples and patterns from the 19th and 20th century, this first collection has recreated vintage styles in the new factory. The Foster & Son team has taken designs previously reserved for bespoke customers only, making them available to the public for the very first time.
The Arlington Tassel Loafer by Foster & Son is a model developed exclusively for The Armoury. Sitting on the comfortable and elegant No. 18 Last. The Arlington Tassel Loafer inherits a long Foster tradition of making top quality tassel loafers, probably because of the longstanding connections with the USA and the City of London. Featuring a hand-sewn apron and clean heal counter, this splendid shoe is made to the highest standards and should become a wardrobe favorite very quickly.
