EDWARD GREEN

 

Edward Green was a man with a singular passion for shoes. Starting in the industry as a twelve-year-old apprentice, Edward was driven by an ambition to make a better class of shoe. He established his own workshop in Northampton in 1890, gathering around him the town’s most illustrious craftsmen, each an expert in their respective field, and sourced the best materials for them to work with. “Excellence without compromise,” was his promise and soon his name became associated with the finest English Goodyear Welted footwear, gracing style icons from Ernest Hemingway to Edward, the Duke of Windsor. 

Edward Green is still based in Northampton and have over sixty skilled artisans making around 350 pairs of shoes a week, many for export to the world's leading boutiques and department stores as well as our own shops in London and Paris. 

Available for Ready-To-Wear and Made-to-order.

STEFANO BEMER

  Stefano Bemer started his company in 1983 with a goal no less ambitious than creating the perfect Italian shoe. Through his curiosity, he taught himself the infinite variations of shoemaking by repairing shoes at first, attending courses and workshops and then mastering his own technique in the way it’s recognized and appreciated today. Thanks to Stefano’s commitment, the brand name has been more and more associated with the highest standard of Italian elegance and quality and, nowadays, stands as a synonymous of both style and refinement.

JUSTIN FITZPATRICK 

    In creating the first collection of J.FitzPatrick footwear, the idea of harmonising the characteristic traits of English, Italian and French footwear served as the foundation to the direction of design and creation. Having loved an element of manufacturing from each country’s process, Justin wanted to somehow blend all three in order to create a shoe that he felt did not yet exist in the marketplace. Available for Ready-To-Wear and Made-to-order.
