About

Robert August represents the Fusion of 21st Century Technology and Old World Craftsmanship.

With our 360° Design Studio Robert August gives you the ability to design a completely custom pair of shoes. You can create literally Billions of different designs.  From a pair of custom Wingtips, to Chukka Boots and even Trainers, Robert August let’s you express your own Unique Style.

Every pair of Robert August Shoes are Handcrafted to order in our workshop in Almansa Spain, with a history of artisan shoemaking dating back to the early 18th century. Robert August uses only the finest leathers from tanneries in Italy, Germany, and Spain and sartorial fabrics from the most prestigious mills in Italy, France, and Belgium.  Our craftsmen then transform these materials using generations of knowledge and skill to create an exceptional pair of shoes unique to you.

Originally Founded in Las Vegas NV in 2013, Robert August worked exclusively by appointment and provided Luxury Custom Menswear, including Handmade Suits and Shirts.  After years of research and design, Robert August finally added custom designed footwear and accessories with ability to offer our items to a worldwide market.

Founding Story

The company was originally founded in 2013 as Bespoke by Demian, we were by appointment only and provided custom-made men's dress shirts and suits, adding shoes in 2015. In 2016 we launched our website and changed the name to Robert August, offering our custom-made footwear to a worldwide audience.

Having spent over 20 years in the luxury industry, focusing the first 15 years in Fine Jewelry and Timepieces, I first started working with custom made dress shirts as a necessity. I always enjoyed a fine suit and dressing well, but proper fitting shirts were a pain to find, and when my custom tailor retired, I decided to launch my own brand.
