Matt Smith’s NEW boots!
They are made from two colours, a dark brown and a purple to compliment the new Cashmere Frock Coat.
To top that they are covered in hundreds of hand punched detailing at every twist and turn of the leather.
When I collected my boots, I went to their workshop where all the boots for some amazing film and tv work are done.
Recently they worked on Les Miserables, Lincoln and The Dark Knight as well as the latest Thor movie.
The boots are then made around a foot shape, known as a “last”. I have had several boots made for me now, but when it can to making these they could not lay their hands on my last.
Quick thinking, they realised my feet are pretty much the same size as Matt’s, so they used Matt Smith’s actual last to my my boots!!!!
This also meant the pattern didn’t need to be graded up or down, so what I have are preciely the same as Matt’s in every regard.
How cool is that??!
If you look very closely you’ll see the lasts are labelled WHO rather than Matt’s name as his casting was top secret.
The boots have one very last secret to give up, which I’ll show you properly very soon. It’s such a subtle and clever touch - and so cool when you hear what it is!
