Today, we still design and manufacture from our Lancashire factory, but from small beginnings we’ve grown to become the biggest footwear manufacturer in the UK. We’ve invested millions of pounds in state-of-the-art equipment, and computer generated design may have changed the manufacturing process, but nothing can change our passion to make the most comfortable shoes in the world.
