Founded 1873 in United Kingdom
Based in Northampton

Church's is more than a company, it is a legacy, one that is made to last.

The founding family's shoemaking roots date back to 1675 as artisanal traditions. An unwavering dedication to quality and craftsmanship have been passed down from one family member to the next. Clients, with years of first-hand experience adore the reliability and excellence of the Church's product.

Church's shoes take about eight weeks and more than 250 manual operations to produce. They are constructed with the world-renowned Goodyear method that allows for refurbishment and even the most worn in pair will come back looking like new. In terms of aesthetic, the classic elegance of their design. The integrity of Church's, both as a brand and as a product, lies in its timelessness and its ability to transcend time, age and generations.
