It has weathered the tides of changing fashion trends for over a century to become one of the world’s most renowned footwear specialists. Now, as it approaches its 140th year, Church’s reopens its newly refurbished Canary Wharf store.
As the first company to create the ‘left’ and ‘right’ shoe in the 17th century, rather than the ‘straight’ shoe, Church’s revolutionised footwear with its groundbreaking creations. Today, all of Church’s shoes are still handcrafted in Northampton, the birthplace of the company, using the same materials and manufacturing process that the company has relied upon for years.
Since its earnest beginnings, Church’s has grown into a global brand with stores opening in Hong Kong, Singapore, Madrid and Turin. Now owned by the PRADA Group, the shoemaker opened its first women’s only store last year as they branched out to the female market.
Visit the Canary Wharf store to see Church’s latest men’s and ladies collections, as well as a range of fine leather goods, accessories and ready-to-wear items.
