George Banister and Will Vickery are cousins with a passion for high quality craftsmanship. They appreciate the care and skill that goes into every pair of Herring Shoes, particularly the Gosforth you can see them wearing.
We met with them at their workshops in Somerset where they create stunning Shepherd's Huts to bespoke designs.
Originally conceived hundreds of years ago, Shepherd Huts first hit popularity in the Victorian era. The huts were made up on farms with whatever was to hand, if there was a resident carpenter then it would have involved mainly wood, if you had a blacksmith then it would have been more metal.
Today George and William are breathing new life into this traditional market, in much the same way we are helping new generations to discover the joy that traditionally crafted shoes can bring.
