A True Family Business
Hotter Original Factory
Established in 1959...
For more than 50 years my family have dedicated their lives to making the most comfortable shoes you'll ever wear. Today, we're still very much a family business, but one with over one million worldwide customers. Innovation, hard work, a passion for perfection and true British spirit have steered our success from the very outset.
