Founded 1997 in United Kingdom
Based in London

In 1996 I left my job in advertising to begin a career as a shoe designer. I found a small but lovely building at 560 Kings Road, London, a wonderful manager called Howard, and together we opened the shop on Saturday April 19th 1997. Today, we still sell shoes from that original building, and Howard is still the heart and sole of the business. We make all our Goodyear Welted shoes here in England and for our Sneakers, Moccasins and Drivers we go further afield to Florence. In addition we make full handmade bespoke shoes and lasts.
