We are kicking off 2017 with a bang and commencing something we have wanted to incorporate for awhile now and that it the offering of Group Made to Order otherwise known as GMTO. As a young brand, we wanted to make sure our MTO offering was in tact and well received before venturing into the GMTO arena. And since launching MTO we have had a great results and feel that it is now time to test the waters by offering this new service. For those of you that might be familiar with GMTO, I have written about a few F.A.Q’s […]

Group MTO- Coming Soon

Dear All, It’s been a very busy start to 2017 and we can only see it getting busier! One thing which we are very excited about is the upcoming launch of our new Group MTO Programme (launching Mid-Feb) This has been done by many brands to great effect and we can see why. In short you get the chance to purchase a shoe not available in the ready-to-wear collection but without an MTO upcharge Fee. We are always making samples of shoes which we like and also MTO samples to showcase what can be done in this service. Below is […]

J.FitzPatrick & The Shoe Snob Winter Sales Now Live!

Today we have launched our Winter Sales for both J.FitzPatrick Footwear and The Shoe Snob accessory site. On The Shoe Snob accessory site, we have discounted everything (with the exception of bundled deals) at 20% off. Now is your time to stock up on creams, wax polishes, brushes and most importantly shoe trees. Just remember that our shoes trees are very form fitting. They are about as close to a generic lasted shoe tree that you can get and getting them for £36 (ex VAT £30) is a steal and I will say without fear of offending other vendors that […]

Time to plan the NYE Party

Dear All, Hope you had a very Merry Christmas. It’s now that time in between Christmas and New Years where it is possible to either continue the festivities or relax for a few days before seeing the New Year come to it’s end- most likely with a party! There are lots of different options for a New Years party and no matter which you are attending, there is a shoe for every occasion! Black Tie- I would recommend wearing a highly shined black oxford. For a unique yet classy look the Aurora (above) would make a great choice for this […]

Big Re-Stock at J.FitzPatrick Footwear

Dear All, We are pleased to announce that we have taken delivery of a large Re-Stock of most of our models. After such a successful Black Friday weekend we were somewhat depleted in our CORE models and especially the Sebastien (Pic above) and the popular Westlake Button Boots. We have increased the orders to keep up with demand and have replenished a good amount of stock which were out for a while.  Whether you are over in the Southern Hemisphere and are in need of some loafers or if you are planning on going for long country walks in the […]

The Genesee- A Jodphur Boot with a twist

  Dear All, Hope everyone is enjoying the festive period and more importantly enjoying Boot season. The change of seeing more and more boots around town is always interesting at this time of year. There are plenty of the usual chunky, misshaped boots that seem that the arctic would be more suitable and then there are some splendid looking dress boots out there too. Alongside out popular Westlake Button Boot, this year we have launched out version of the historic Jodphur Boot. There are many theories behind how and when this style of boot came about but instead of delving […]

J.FitzPatrick MTO Program Price Rise Jan. 1st 2017

Dear All, Two years ago, we launched our MTO program on a very quiet note, which meant that in reality we never sent out a newsletter but accepted orders for those that wrote to us enquiring. We started out with a very low price to not only entice people to give it a try but also because we like to give as fair price as possible. The problem is that we were charging one price but shoes and boots get charged to us at different prices and we therefore started loosing money on certain boots that were quite expensive, not […]

Magnolia- Timeless Oxford

Dear All, I have been away on my Honeymoon in Morocco and now back to the damp, cold London weather. Coming back to work today I chose to wear my new Magnolias in our Brown Soft Grain (above left). Paired with the City Rubber Sole this is the ideal shoe for days like today as it’s slightly wet underfoot but not pouring with rain in order to wear a boot. I love the grain leather for this new model as it does differentiate from the more formal models but still is smart enough to wear with a suit or dress […]

New Button Shoe- The Aurora

Dear All,, Trust you are having a wonderful week. As you know, here at JF we like to create shoes that are both unique and classy at the same time. With the launch of our new Button Shoe, the Aurora, we feel this is a perfect example. Now this style of shoe will not be for everyone however it certainly is a model that will turn heads for the right reasons. Much like our Button Boots, this model takes inspiration from the extremely elegant Victorian Era. We wanted to create a shoe that challenges the boundaries of dress footwear whilst […]

Dear All, After the successful Summer Sale we have been quite low on a majority of our CORE products but fear not!
