From a humble beginning in a small Northampton workshop in 1873, the Church’s brand has grown into an internationally renowned name in high-quality fashionable men's footwear. It is now one of the oldest shoemakers in the UK and retains its strong focus on classic shoe design and traditional British manufacturing techniques, with fashionable updates for each new season.
Church’s custom grade stamp is a mark of excellence, designed for the discerning man looking for classic shoe styles to complement any outfit. The collection features the finest materials, from smooth, naturally finished calf leather to the softest suede and all feature the Church’s custom grade stamp on their leather sole. Calfskin is one of the finest materials for shoemaking as it quickly moulds to the wearer’s foot and holds its shape more effectively than any other material on the market. Nothing is compromised on during the manufacture of Church’s shoes either. Each pair is handmade by expert shoemakers using the Goodyear welting technique, where the shoe’s outsole, insole and upper are stitched together. This helps to increase the shoe’s durability and longevity.
The collection ranges from the modern Oxford and more formal styling of the brogue to the robust desert boot and more casual loafer style.
However formal you like your business dress, Church’s office range has a variety of styles perfect for days in the office, attending important meetings and entertaining clients. The contoured fit of the Oxford makes it a sophisticated choice for office wear or more formal occasions, such as black-tie events. The minimal silhouette hugs the curve of the foot for a sleek line and when worn with straight cut trousers, the Oxford style helps to visually lengthen the legs. The Oxford is available with full brogue detailing, a half brogue design or a more simple design around the toe cap.
Designed for those with a higher instep, the Derby’s open-lacing construction makes it more comfortable for gentlemen looking for a wider fit. The design features classic lines and open lacing, with a versatile look that works perfectly with both smart, business dress and more casual work occasions. This versatility also makes it the perfect all-rounder, for style in and out of the office.
More alternative style-seekers will love Church’s range of Monk Strap shoes. This design replaces the laces with one or two straps for a real statement look. Very popular in the 1920s, this look is quickly coming back into fashion. Opt for designs with a single strap for a streamlined, classical appearance or make a bold modern statement with a double strap.
The tassel loafer pairs perfectly with more casual business dress or a lightweight linen suit for a smart summer look. For those looking for a slip-on shoe to wear to a black-tie event, Church’s Venetian loafer style offers wearers a slipper-like appearance with an unadorned vamp.
