Over the years Herring Shoes have built close relationships with many of the Northampton manufacturers working directly with Mr Nicholas Loake, William Barker and William Church.

Adrian Herring worked in the Barkers factory for a period to learn in detail the constructions and craft of English handmade shoes.

Through these contacts we have our own range of footwear made for us in Northampton by Barkers, Cheaney, Loakes and Trickers.

Our knowledge of the factories enables us to create our Herring shoes using the best aspects of each manufacturer to produce the right combination of features for each and every shoe we create. 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. More often we create our own individual designs and styles which set us and our customer apart from the crowd.
