Shoe Manufacturer Bednar – You’ve Entered the Realm of Shoes Made by a Master Craftsman

The product makes the master

What I love after nearly 40 years of my profession just as I did on my first day? The honesty of the handicraft!  It has its own value and brings pleasure be it repairs simply because something beautiful should be kept as long as possible or the crafting of a new custom made work of art.

A master-made shoe from my workshop with traditional workmanship offers the utmost in foot comfort.  The shoe is made to 98% of high quality leather and 3-fold stitching of the side pieces.

Each one is unique and one of a kind, a custom made work of art and each has the sole purpose of bringing pleasure!

Wishing you the best

Herbert Bednar, Master Shoemaker
