JEFFERY-WEST - Infamous English Shoes
Founded in 1987 by Mark Jeffery and Guy West, Jeffery-West has established itself as one of Britain’s key men’s footwear originators and prides itself on quality and authenticity.
Based in Northampton, the centre of the British shoemaking and leather making industries, Jeffery-West has kept true to the traditional principles of this illustrious and world-renowned industry while adding our own unique design sensibility. Our shoes are made by hand using the 'Blake stitch' or ‘Goodyear welt’ construction process - which has been the foundation of traditional bespoke shoemaking for over 130 years.
Mixing elements from Victorian knocking shops to Rock ‘n’ Roll aristocracy, Jeffery-West is about the detail – the satyr’s cloven hoof cut heel, the military inspired red lining, and the gothic architecture influenced diamond punching.
