My name is Kevin Garlick and for several years I have been making handmade shoes for re-enactors, films, theatres and museums. I have been in the re-enacting scene for many years, I started in 1976, so I know what a shoe or boot has to go through. I make them for people with different budgets and authenticity needs.

Have a look at some of the footwear I make. I can't show every thing that I have made, so if you need something different please send a photo or drawing and I will let you know if it can be done.

If you are into Swing Jive, Lindy Hop, 1940’s re-enactment or just love Vintage you may just find that special pair of shoes here. 

The images shown in the gallery are of pairs that I have made for customers and you are not restricted to these designs or colours, the choice is yours.

Particular attention is paid to both pitch and balance to produce a comfortable pair of shoes and no nasty plastic or cardboard is used in their construction. The shoes can be made with either rubber or leather soles depending on customer requirements.

Matching pairs of ladies and men's Swing Jive shoes are my specialty.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss your requirements.
