Our guiding principle is that our crafted products are wherever possible made in England.

The centre of this activity is the Foster & Son workshop, situated right over our retail store in Jermyn Street, and staffed by an enthusiastic dedicated team of shoe and bootmakers who have many years’ experience in leather craftsmanship.

English Shoemaking at its most refined

With our trade reputation for refined bespoke shoemaking, we have been known as “The shoemakers’ shoemaker”.

Our 179 years’ heritage of artist craftsmanship is reflected in the uncompromising quality and design of our boots, shoes, cases, luggage, wallets and other English leather goods.

In our Jermyn Street workshop we create new designs for customers across the World, so if you require a unique hand-crafted piece, we are happy to collaborate with you on a new project or re-creating an old design.

Our new Northampton facility is now producing beautiful footwear, which was well received at Pitti Uomo .
 St. Crispin's Day opening attracted wide press coverage:

"Nothing delights me more than when I am able, after a hearty breakfast, to slip into a pair of brilliantly shined shoes in which to go to work. It is the signature of a true gent, before any word is spoken"- Sir David Tang
