made to measure

At Pappos shoes we pride ourselves on using the traditional methods of the bespoke handmade shoemaker and combining them with the highest quality materials and craftmanship to produce a unique and tailored pair of shoes that are specifaclly adapted to suit your orthopaedic needs whilst disguising them within an asthetically pleasing and fashionable pair of shoes. 

 We also offer specialist footwear for diabetics with specially adapted lining.

Every part of the procedure is carried out in house at our workshop in Bristol and most importantly we offer the best prices available.


adaptions and insoles

We are able to adapt, adjust or alter almost any kind of footwear to your personal requirements.

Incl. footwear raises, rocker soles, sockets, sole and heel wedge and float,  zip replacement, repairs to surgical footwear, velcro straps etc.


We also make moulded insoles.

To achieve the perfect fit and to ensure the maximum contact between the sole of the foot and the shoe, we create a mould of your foot by using a foam box to take foot impression (this process can be done by post).

Here you will find various examples of previous work we have completed for clients.  

Every pair of boots and shoes on this website has been individually and specifically made-to-measure for clients who are unable to wear off-the-shelf footwear because of a wide variety of foot problems.

These are however just examples of what is available to help you whilst deciding how you would like your shoes as every pair of shoes made are different and will be made to suit your preferences.
