Church Footwear was founded in 1873 by Thomas Church and his three sons Alfred, William and Thomas Jr. The Church family had experience in producing handmade shoes dating back to 1675--these guys knew what they were doing. Centuries later, Church’s is still making well-crafted shoes, and is based in Northampton, not far from London. Their women's collection includes boots, shoes and slippers.
