Manufacturing tradition and timeless elegance represent the distinctive elements of the style journey of Church’s shoes that began with its foundation in 1873.
That same year, resting on the family shoemaking experience specialized in the production of handmade men’s footwear dating back to 1675, the first shoe production laboratory was opened at 30 Maple Street in Northampton.
With its creations, Church’s becomes synonymous with an impeccable style that remains faithful to the aesthetic codes of its British attitude, without sacrificing the exploration of new areas of expression, playing with the combination of three primary elements: finest leather, classic taste and excellent cultural craftsmanship.
Symbol of British artisanal style, Church’s dedicates meticulous attention and care to every detail. Approximately 250 manual steps and 8 weeks of manufacturing are necessary to create one single pair of shoes.
An always-modern luxury that enshrines an impeccable tradition of a formal yet effortless style.
