Richard de Winter, the founder of Bradshaw & Lloyd, has spent 30 years working with Northamptonshire shoemakers.
The culmination of this knowledge is the DE WINTER collection of handcrafted boots for everyday use.
Each pair is made entirely in England with a focus on quality and craftsmanship. The boots are hand cut, stitched and traditionally goodyear welted entirely by Northamptonshire craftsmen using only the finest European suedes and leathers.
The last provides both the look and fit of a boot and our unique Hurst last gives a truly elegant boot shape with superb fit for both foot and ankle. The Hurst last is an F, medium-wide, fitting and is true to standard English sizing.
Why DE WINTER boots?
