Church’s footwear bears the name of its founder, Stone Church, a master shoemaker.
His great-grandson, Thomas, opened a small factory in 1873 in Northampton, a town steeped in shoemaking history. In a short time, Church’s transformed from a workshop to a high quality footwear brand suppling shoe shops in the UK and Europe.
In the 1890’s, Church’s began to explore branching out into markets abroad but it was not until 1907 that potential buyers were found in America and Canada. In 1921 the first Church’s shoe shop was opened in London, with the first shop abroad opening in New York’s Madison Avenue eight years later. In 1957 a new factory was established, this is still the Company’s worldwide headquarters. Church’s continued to expand to international markets in America, Canada and the Far East. Church’s produced footwear for the armed services during the second world war and was a founder member of the British Shoe and Allied Trades Research Association.
All handmade production of Church’s footwear takes place inside the factory by specialised craftsmen.Each pair takes up to eight weeks to produce and undergoes 250 manual operations before they leave the factory. Church’s welted shoes are manufactured in Northhampton.
Churchs slippers are the epitome of good old fashioned traditional English shoemaking. We have had a long association with the Churchs brand and are priviledged to stock a fine assortment of their premium leather slippers. We stock classics, such as Ajax with a harder outer sole and Hermes with a soft sole. The Perseus mule slipper is always a popular choice with it's soft leather upper. All styles are crafted from the finest materials using traditional shoe making techniques.
