Francis Waplinger offers Made-To-Order and Bespoke footwear for men and women.

All shoes are handmade 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.

Mr. Waplinger began his training in Italy under the tutelage of Angelo Imperatrice, followed by an apprenticeship with famed Florentine shoemaker Roberto Ugolini and a stateside apprenticeship with Master Shoemaker Marcell Mrsan.
