Formal luxury men’s shoes have been manufactured in London since the 19th century and the industry enjoyed a huge improvement as a result of the war. In London’s very own West End was where many of the new designs and techniques were founded due to the skilled cobblers that operated during this time.
In modern times, London remains at the forefront of men’s shoe fashion and London Fashion Week is one of the many events that showcase the latest designs for the world to see. The huge variety of shoe brands available in the many stores in London ensure that whether you are looking for a leather shoe or a light pair of loafers, you’ll be covered in London with the likes of Mr. Hare producing shoes made from the finest Italian leathers.
London is also home to the largest men's shoe department in the world which spans 15,000 ft² and boasts 3200 shoe styles, many of which are London’s based shoe brands.
Bring your luxury leather shoes back to your trusted shoemaker once a year for a resole in order to keep your shoes in top condition.
