In one of the old wooden houses listed in idyllic Akersveien, a few steps down from street level, sits Jan Petter Myhre among wood, tools, leather and waxed thread. He is the only bespoke shoe maker in Oslo, a mix of old handcraft tradition, shoe art and anatomy. It takes time to create a pair of hand made shoes – almost 40 effective working hours, sometimes more than that too. It starts with a personal meeting with the customer, where Jan Petter forming a picture of the needs, not to mention; an image of the feet anatomy – instep, toenail height and heel curve. It must be a good link between form, function and shoe materials.

Jan Petter Myhre is educated in one of London’s traditional family businesses within bespoke shoemaking, who made hand-stitched shoes for more than five generations. Today Myhre have customers worldwide – Hong Kong, New York and Bahrain, and of course Norwegian customers.
