Did you know that all our ready-to-wear shoes are manufactured in Northampton, UK? Although officially associated with Northampton in the 15th Century, shoemaking established itself early on with references as early as 1202. Northampton was often referred to as having the highest quality shoes in the business. ‘Sixty-four stiches to the inch’ was a reference to the detailed and painstaking quality that went into the shoes. Northampton's football team is still called "The Cobblers" today:)
