Who's Wearing Golden Boot

Michael Fermor

Michael Fermor is the Director at Rumwood Nurseries & Garden Centre in Kent, a fellow independent business and the best rose growers in the South East!

With a beautiful garden centre boasting a broad range of high-quality products including plants, trees, shrubs, flowers and pots alongside a delectable coffee shop, we highly recommend a visit to any green fingered gardener.

“I joined Rumwoods over ten years ago because I found the process of rose growing really fascinating, there are so many different and unique varieties you never stop learning about them. What other job can you come home from smelling of roses?”

As Kent's largest and best grower of Roses, they also specialise in mail order deliveries - a service that they have been operating for over 50 years. It comes as a no surprise that over this time they have built up a vast catalogue of beautiful roses available for us to purchase.

Michael is a massive advocate of The Golden Boot. “Rumwood Nurseries & Garden Centre is a local business originally set up by my Grandad, who still loves to get involved! I work alongside my Dad and Uncle, it’s a family affair and we love to support other local independent businesses like the Golden Boot.”

If you required any further proof Michael recently married his best friend, Charlotte, in comfort and style wearing his favourite brand R. M. Williams, fitted and purchased from our shop in Maidstone. (Shoes and belts pictured)

Michael Fermor

When asked the ultimate question, Michael told us that his favourite rose this year is aptly ‘it’s a wonderful life’ and we couldn’t think of a more inspiring answer.

Our R. M. Williams Chinchilla boots are a limited edition style, painted by hand and available in two colours - Bordeaux and Cognac. Each pair is completely unique. Get them before they go!

Tabitha Ringwood

Swapping Heels for Hokas and Raising Money for Breast Cancer Research.

Tabitha Ringwood is a Footwear Designer and the in-house Designer here at the Golden Boot!

Tabitha started working at the Golden Boot when she was 16, originally fitting and selling shoes on the shop floor. After studying Footwear Design at University and designing for some very well known brands including River Island, New Look, Schuh, Topshop and Adidas, she decided to branch out and started her own business.

Shoes are Tabitha’s passion, and she hand make’s every order from a small studio in London. She’s had some incredible customers including models Jourdan Dunn and Paloma Elsesser as well as Cardi B and Beyonce!

Tabitha, who grew up in Maidstone and used to shop here with her Mum as a child, has always loved working for the Golden Boot. Over the years she has collaborated with Ed, our MD, on many different creative projects including re-designing the Children’s Shop, creating the seasonal and Christmas Window displays, designing the eco packaging that your online orders arrive in, creating The First Shoe experience, designing the website, emails, socials and she designed our very own Golden Boot leather bag and accessories range.

Tabitha Ringwood

This weekend, with some Golden Boot sponsorship behind her, Tabitha swapped her handmade heels for a pair of Hokas to support a charity that’s very close to her heart, having been diagnosed with breast cancer only last year at the age of 32. Wearing a pair of our Hoka Clifton 9s, she bravely took to the streets of London, at midnight, in a bra, to raise money for cancer awareness and research. ‘Walk the Walk’ are an incredible breast cancer charity who raise money through power walking challenges including the midnight Moonwalk Marathons in London, Scotland and Iceland.

The Golden Boot helped Tabitha to the finish line in comfort and style. This year’s theme was Fiesta! And boy did the Hoka’s meet the brief!

Tabitha Ringwood

Alongside 5k+ people including some famous faces, the walk took the team from Clapham Common on a circular route down the river and past some of London’s famous landmarks, all lit up in pink to support the cause.

So far Tabitha and her team of 6 have raised over £5.5k for vital cancer research! The Moonwalk 2024 event has raised nearly £2m for cancer research and to provide emotional and physical support for those living with cancer.

If you would like to get involved in walking and running events, either as beginner or as an experienced athlete, check out our new initiative ‘Move Your Way.’

With its superlight EVA sole and side zip closure it ticked all the boxes. It’s such a versatile boot, easily teamed with denims or worn with a suit. We wanted to make them extra special so using our in-house embossing service we added his initials.

Abi Clarke

We spent the afternoon with Kent based artist and DJ, Abi Clarke. We sipped coffee and chatted art, fashion, music and of course - the new Clarks Torhill!

Abi went for the dusty pink, that just so happened to perfectly match her carefully curated outfit for that day. It's easy to see from her collages and screen prints, that Abi is not afraid of colour. She primarily uses shapes, bold colours and typeface to create her uplifting artworks, also inspired by the music she loves, grew up with and shares with others.

"I was born in the 60s. Back then when you were a kid you wanted sweets, but when you got to about 9 or 10, you'd want to collect records. Over many years I built up a record collection. In 1996 I was at a friends party and their music system had broken down! Music system being a CD player in those days. I had some cassettes with a compilation of all my favourite records on in my car, so I brought that into the party."

Abi goes on to tell me about this promoter, who happened to be at the party and who loved her choice in tracks. He asked her to DJ at his club when it opens in London. Laughingly and not taking the offer seriously, she accepted. It was only after a phone call from a friend that she realised the event was serious, and that her name was printed on 5000 fliers ready to promote her DJing in the West End that following week!

Abi Clarke

After a quick lesson on queuing up records from a friend, the next 28 years were set, and it started her career as a DJ locally and across the world. As well as travelling all over to share music she loves, Abi also has a monthly radio show on Mysoul Radio.

"My first love, my passion is music. Closely following that is clothes and shoes! I love my clothes, I'll wear them for decades. I consider clothes and shoes to be real treasures."

Abi explains that her jeans were bought from a dear friend's shop in Camden, she then customised them herself. The jacket was handmade by a friend out of other sentimental clothing and the necklace is crafted by a Native American artist. The Pendleton blanket waistcoat was our personal favourite!

The conversation moves to shoes - Clarks specifically. And Abi talks us briefly through the history of Clarks shoes in relation to music.

Clarks shoes were adopted heavily by the reggae and dancehall musicians and Rudeboys of Jamaica. Due to them being considered expensive, they felt it was what they needed to impress. Wutang Clan got into wearing Clarks, and more recently MF Doom. Acid House Ravers wore Wallabees into some of the clubs, as they weren't allowed to wear trainers but needed something colourful and comfortable.

"That's why these Torhills are so interesting to me, because of that connection with the music that I love"

The painting, collage and screen printing came during lockdown. Abi's Dad's studio (Graham Clarke) wasn't being used, so she moved in! The first one made was 'We Are One' and it went from there. The others are inspired by the music she loves. ' Super Natural Thing' is now a brand her the printing and artwork, as well as the title of her radio show. " It's about being your authentic self, your natural self, embracing it for what it is"

You can listen to Abi here: www.mixcloud.com/abi-clarke/ and find her artwork on Instagram.
