About Shoe Artistry
When this local bespoke shoe shop was forced to close down due to 3 folds increase in rent in 2011, Kit Lee took over the business and gave it a new life with his husband, Jeff Wan and a few shoes makers under their belt. The name 鞋藝工舘 in Chinese means a place for people of common interest to get together and combine businesses, apprenticeship, training that bring together both craft and artistry and eventually forms a community which is also the mission and vision of Shoe Artistry.

A true community person she is, Kit Lee and Jeff Wan is also the founder of a platform called “HNDSME Co-OP” which means Handmade Small Medium Enterprise Co-Op and Social Goods with a mission to work along the lines of Locally Designed, Locally Sourced and Locally produced in Hong Kong.
