Canons specialise in both mens and womens made to measure footwear which is fully bespoke. Our unique focus is always on combining an accurate fit with the finest London’s Westend shoemaking techniques. For more information on our process we have written a short description here or you can watch a recent film by Insider Business featuring interviews with our specialist team and a look inside our London workshop here

Our shoemakers consistently return to the USA on a trunk show multiple times during the year to meet new customers for measuring and starting their custom shoe journey or to try on shoes before we complete them.

The term ‘trunk show’ comes from the fact that before we travelled via modern jet engined planes our shoemakers visited the USA via boat. We would bring with us large trunks full of samples and fitting shoes in much the same way we do today. Our history of travelling to the USA spans many decades. Our own master last maker Terry Moore, travelled from the 1950’s until his retirement, before handing over to our current last maker who continues the tradition.
