J.FitzPatrick Footwear is a brand launched in 2013 by the shoe blogger known worldwide as "The Shoe Snob," Justin FitzPatrick. His idea was to harmonize the characteristic traits of English, Italian and French footwear. While creating his footwear line, he focused on three important aspects: construction, fit and design.
The construction had to be goodyear welted, but with the comfort of an Italian shoe. this was achieved with Italian chestnut-tanned soles. The fit was very important, so he used a bespoke last made by the master last maker Tony Gaziano as the basis for all his lasts. The design is what visually sets him apart, ‘classic with a modern twist,' incorporating British classicism, Italian comfort and French flair into each J.FitzPatrick shoe.
