Over the years Herring Shoes have built close relationships with many of the Northampton manufacturers working directly with Mr Andrew Loake, William Barker and Jonathan and William Church.
Adrian the managing Director of Herring shoes worked in the Barker factory for a period to learn in detail the constructions & craft of English handmade shoes.
Through these contacts we launched our own range of footwear made for us by Barkers, Cheaney, and Loake.
By working with these Northampton factories we can use the best manufacturer for each style of shoe we create and pass the benefit of our knowledge and experience on to the customer.
The Herring range is made to the exact needs of our customers and by working direct with the factories we achieve unique styles. Sometimes we use existing stock models and improve on the specification by adding additional features, changing sole units or sourcing higher quality leathers for the uppers.
On other occasions we have the opportunity to create our own individual designs and styles which set us and our customer apart from the crowd.
Whilst all this is interesting our main drive is to offer customers outstanding quality and service by using our direct connections with the factories.
