The Group Brands

Church’s has challenged the most formal rules of style throughout its history. Church’s expresses contemporary luxury, keeping a centuries-old tradition. It began its distinctive journey when, thanks to a family heritage of handcrafted shoemaking experience dating back to 1675, the first Church’s brand shoe factory was opened in 1873 at 30 Maple Street in Northampton, England. Over time, Church’s turned a small cordwainer’s workshop into a leading luxury footwear company.

With its creations, Church’s has become synonymous with an impeccable style that remains faithful to the British look yet explores new design areas, playing with the combination of three primary elements: the finest leather, classic style and excellent craftsmanship. Church’s dedicates meticulous attention and care to every detail: approximately 250 manual steps and 8 weeks of labor are necessary to make a single pair of shoes.
