About us

We are a team of five people - Kevin, Joscelyn, Jeremy, Arthur and Ellie.

Our handmade first edition Arkwright shoes can be worn flexibly, looking great with a suit and tie as well as with a pair of jeans!

The design is original, but it is the incorporation of the Harris Tweed and mixed textures that really make them unique. We have an exclusive tweed from Harris Tweed Hebrides which features threads directly matched to the leathers we use. And the distinctiveness extends through the shoe with a luxurious purple kid leather lining inside and an unusual leather-rubber sole and a patent-pending double eagle heel.

It is important to us that our shoes should require the minimum of breaking in, so we have chosen a flexible construction method instead of the more rigid Goodyear welt common amongst English shoes. We select all our materials ourselves and rigorously test each style for comfort and wear.

We're based in London, and take personal responsibility for all aspects of our design and manufacture.

We’ve got loads of ideas going forward, including bringing in more colours and textures. We’re also working on plans to bring out a range of leisure shoes.  Sign up to our newsletter to receive the latest news on all Govan developments!
