WHO WE ARE
TG Shoes is all about making bespoke luxury footwear affordable to people. The brand is named after the founding member, Taimur Ghaznavi, a custom furniture professional who has been in the industry for years. His experience, knowledge, passion and the gap within the custom shoes market initiated the idea of “TG Shoes”. Our attention to unique designs and intricate details guarantees footwear that are both timeless and on-trend. With only 16 months in the business, TG Shoes have already crossed its sale target mark. We have also been featured on CTV Canada, TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) and are always the top choice for company vendors such as; InventHelp.

The first step involves cutting the leather according to the design which is then stitched in the design pattern of the pair.
Once this is done, the sole is attached and stitched by hand. This ensures the durability of the product and gives off a classic vibe to each pair.
Lastly, the imperfections are rubbed off from the design using different types of brushes and polish.
New Standard for High Standards
TG Shoes uses Grade 1 leather for all pairs, ensuring top quality products. We also use the “Goodyear welt construction” which involves stitching a welt to the upper and a strip of canvas (known as “gemming”) which cemented to the insole of a shoe as an attach-point for the sole. The space enclosed by the welt is then filled with cork or some other filler material (usually either porous or perforated, for breathability), and the outsole is both cemented and stitched to the welt.
Love your Shoes
Water clogged? If your shoes are wet, stuff them with newspaper as soon as possible and keep them away from direct heat (which can dry the leather too fast, causing it to crack and loosen adhesives). Throw out the shoe box. Storing leather shoes in its original packaging for long periods of time will do harm to the materials (thanks to humidity). Keep them on a shoe rack instead. Put trees in your shoes. After conditioning and cleaning, cedar shoe trees are the best thing you can do for your footwear. They retain the shape of the shoe, reduce creases, and naturally absorb moisture/odors. Look for one with a full heel made out of unfinished cedar. Give them the day off. Wearing your chestnut brown wingtips three weeks straight is definitely not going to prolong their life. Every few days give the shoes a chance to “breathe”. Use a shoe horn. That foot wiggle dance you do when trying to get your shoes on destroys the heels. Add taps to the shoe. Much like the leather on the top, the material on the bottom of the shoe also needs to be protected. Shoe taps act like buffers between your heel and the ground. They absorb the shock and damage of constant usage. However, don’t add taps until you’ve worn the shoes for 12-18 months. This gives their soles the proper amount of time to conform to your foot.
