Eight weeks of meticulous handcrafting goes into each and every pair of Church's shoes – the Cornwood 2 Chelsea boots included. A softly grained pair of leather shoes, they're assembled in England by the brand's team of talented artisans. What we love most about this iteration is their Goodyear construction – complete with storm welt – which is super durable and doesn't add much additional weight to the light rubber sole.
Stone Church, aptly named as the rock upon which Church’s was founded, was born in 1675 and trained as a cordwainer and master shoemaker. His skills were passed down to his greatgrandson Thomas who opened a small factory with his sons and his wife Eliza in Northampton, on 1st May 1873. Northampton is a town not far from London with a history in shoemaking dating back to Cromwellian times. In the space of a few years, Church’s was transformed from a craft workshop into a benchmark firm for high-quality footwear, both locally and for the most demanding shoe shops in London and elsewhere in Europe.
