Northampton is the heart of England’s most famous and prestigious shoe making heritage and we are enormously proud to have been manufacturing our footwear in the heart of the town for more than twenty five years.

Each of our clients are as individual as the footwear we craft for them. Whether you require footwear simply for style and aesthetics or your needs are medical and comfort based. We take all the time that is needed to make our footwear the highest quality possible. Only traditional techniques and skill are employed using the finest leathers and polishes. All our shoes are hand crafted. Glues and sprays are not found on shoes. The whole manufacturing processes takes place in our workshop.

Unfortunately, time-honoured shoe making skills are declining within our industry. The traditional footwear manufacturing climate in Britain is so volatile that few factories and workshops remain. When the Craftsman retire, their skills gained through generations of shoemakers are lost, forever. Apprentices have not been trained to take their place. Along with our fellow remaining shoemakers we have become a niche manufacturing breed, making footwear that has no place in the fast paced world and holds no store with a product that is not dictated by how long it took to make and could there have been a cheaper, quicker, inferior replica.
