The Golden Boot History
The Golden Boot is truly unique. It is the longest running, family owned and independent shoe shop in the UK, having been established by William Randall in 1790.
Fast-forward seven generations of family shoe-makers, merchants and traders, and meet Edward Martin — William Randall’s Great, Great, Great, Great Grandson and Managing Director at The Golden Boot, and his Father Lawrence — Chairman.
The Golden Boot has seen extensive changes over the last 225 years, and today boasts a huge comprehensive family shoe shop and dedicated online store. The traditional shoe-fitting experience in each of the departments is superb, and this reputation of quality, passion and trust has attracted customers from all over the world.
The Golden Boot team is extensively knowledgeable, and believes whole-heartedly in offering customers an unforgettable shopping experience.
The Golden Boot Culture
We are truly passionate about shoes. We believe that product and good service are key. We believe that balancing fashion with fit is paramount. We source our ranges from all over the world, choosing to work with brands and factories that operate with the same ethos as us also placing an emphasis on innovation and progression. We attend the key global trade shows and also regularly visit factories.
At The Golden Boot we value your custom and want to ensure that you are entirely happy with your purchase and have an enjoyable experience in the shop. Our sales team are on hand at all times. Each member of the team is professionally trained and genuinely wants to ensure that you have a memorable visit.
The Golden Boot continues to innovate in both product and store design; it continues to stand out from the crowd in today’s homogenised high street, offering a range of products with something just that little bit different.
