    The story

    Gaziano & Girling may be youthful by the standards of British shoemakers, but founders Tony Gaziano and Dean Girling bring their combined decades of shoe handmaking experience to produce footwear that ranks amongst the world's very best - testament to the fact that expertise and core principles are as valuable as brand and heritage. Founded in 2006, the company is renowned for its faultless craftsmanship and unparalleled design. All the brand’s shoes are made from French or Swiss calf hide, while the soles are made from oak bark leather, which has been naturally processed for 14 months at Devonshire’s J & FJ Baker. Each pair is then lovingly crafted in the brand’s factory in Kettering, Northamptonshire - one of the first such factories opened in decades - by a group of artisans under the direct supervision of Tony and Dean themselves.
