Last week saw the opening of Oliver Spencer’s new shoe shop, located on Lamb’s Conduit Street in London’s Bloomsbury area. Not surprisingly, Oliver has opted to open on the same street as his current Flagship store, more than a good move in my opinion.
The opening of the shop also saw a collaboration with former Liberty head of menswear Simon Spiteri, developing a Northampton made lace up, deck shoe, and moccasin. Along side these collaboration pieces Oliver has decided to deck the shop out with designs that represent the pinnacle of its particular style, from a £50 sneaker to a £300 Goodyear welted brogue boot along with models from Quoddy, Converse, Gourmet and Velva from Spain. I can imagine this will become a destination shop with quite a bit of returning trade. Nice shoes on a nice street – what more do you want? The shop also offers leather wallets from Il Bussetto and leather/canvas bags from Sean Marshall.
Heres what Oliver has to say about it :
“We’ve created a place where men can find a really great pair of shoes – every visit. Men are not being looked after by the current crop of stores. We want to give blokes what they deserve: an old school shoe shop for the modern guy, our type of guy, the guy who wants style and quality on their feet.”
