Timeless classics – to last a lifetime! Church's was founded in 1873 by Thomas Church, who was characterised by his passion for quality and his innovative spirit: he was the first to manufacture left and right shoes on different lasts, while most other shoemakers still made pairs from two identically shaped shoes. The Northampton-based label was acquired by Prada in 1999. The change in management had virtually no impact on the traditional manufacturing processes. The classic design, the loafers, Oxford, or Derby models, all still reflect the high quality, flair, and love for detail of the family business. It takes around eight weeks and 250 production steps to manufacture these elegant leather shoes – it therefore comes as no surprise that the label is ranked among the best in the world. Excellent British shoemaking by Church's – now available at BRAUN Hamburg.
