Men's Traditional Shoes - Men's Footwear in Camberwell

Men's Traditional Shoes is an independent men's shoe shop in Camberwell, South London.

Selling a variety of high quality mens shoes, Alfred -the owner and manager of the shop- stocks only the best performing high-end shoe brands. Expect to see many of the household names including; Loakes; Alfred Sargent; Cheaney; Trickers and Dr Martens.

Meanwhile, the shop itself is steeped in history, having been sitting in it's current position in Camberwell since 1861. The Shop has changed significantly since then and has been dedicated to shoes since the 1890s. Owner Billy and Fred -also known as 'Fred the Shoe'- took over the shop in 1957, after the previous owner died, at the age of 90, in the shop, having been born in it 90 years previously.

In terms of shoes types, Fred the Shoe sells classic shoes and boots including Tassel Loafers, Brogues, Desert Boots,  Monkey Boots and more. He's a friendly man so don't be afraid to push him for an anecdote or two about his days as a mod back in the 60s, or about the changes in shoe fashion he has seen throughout his life.
