Our journey started when our Founder Mr. Manish Bhagwani, an IIT Kharagpur Alumnus started observing a gap the Indian market could not fit. He wanted a pair of shoes that should fit his wide feet comfortably and for that, he had to visit a lot of shops to find right fitted shoes. To his surprise, he could not find a wide shoe collection at any retail store or even online.
He then looked for made-to-measure shoemakers from abroad and was taken aback by the amount it requires one to have to get one pair of made-to-measure shoes from there. In some time, he found his cousin also face the same problem of wide feet. He began his research and realized that ill-fitted shoes not only cause discomfort in feet but also lead to long term toe joint pain, fatigue in feet, corns, blisters, and severe problems like hammertoe. After knowing so many bad effects of wrong fitted shoes, he was not comfortable to settle for any shoes, that's where he realized, he needs to solve this issue for many people like him in India.
With a few years of experimental selling online, understanding the shoe life cycle, raw materials, production, design, fitting hiccups & people's difficulties, he started visualizing a new future for the people. His vision became vivid and got transformed into Walker Styleways, a Made to Measure Shoe Brand for people who need comfortably well-fitted shoes without compromising design element.
With this mission in mind today he has set up a dedicated team of professionals those understand customer needs and offers many different possible sizes and widths that would fit any one’s need. Each Made-to-Measure Shoe, manufactured on one's feet measurements, gives a high-value proposition to the customers and help them feel free from daily frustration and feet tiring. Now the team at Walker Styleways knows that MTO (made to order) concept does a lot good to nature as well, it saves an abundance of resources & inventory.
