Gaziano & Girling

Founded 2006 in United Kingdom
Based in Northampton

Gaziano & Girling is a unique shoe company. Founded in 2006 by Tony Gaziano & Dean Girling, it has become the most innovative and versatile shoemaker in England, combining handcrafting and manufacturing skills to put itself at the top of both the bespoke and bench made industries.

Tony and Dean worked for a variety of bespoke makers, designers and Northampton manufacturers before coming together to launch Gaziano & Girling. Their aim was to bring a new look and quality standard to a sometimes somnolent industry, with fresh designs in bespoke and unprecedented handwork in their bench made shoes.

The result is beautifully made footwear that suits men both young and old, conservative and contemporary. Traditional English models are updated with touches of continental flair, in the last, a shaped waist and design elements that together raise a functional shoe into a work of art.

Tony and Dean, both makers in their own right, are today joined by a group of multi-faceted craftsmen at their factory in Kettering, just outside Northampton, the first shoe factory to be set up for over 100 years. By working across disciplines and together forging their distinctive approach, they have made Gaziano & Girling the sine qua non of classic male elegance.
