Gaziano & Girling are the first shoe company to open on Savile Row, as well as being the first to open their own shoe factory in 100 years. Their bespoke range allows the customer free rein to create their perfect shoe, specifying the shape, details and leather. From the cutting and lasting of the leather to the stitching of the welt and sole, every stage is done by hand, the hand-waxed linen thread tying together a work of pure art. Fewer than 100 pairs are made every year.
In 2015 as a result of consistent requests, Gaziano & Girling expanded its shoe range to include women’s styles. There are three available in the debut collection launching in April 2016: the Maddison Chelsea boot, the Liberty slip-on and a delicate one-eyelet derby, the Florence.
The range includes shoes in calf, alligator, stingray and lizard, although all are available both ready to wear and made to order. There is also a bespoke service.
Gaziano & Girling’s ladies shoes are unique. They combine fine, delicate design with traditional construction, ensuring both elegance and comfort. Women have longed for quality, good materials and – most importantly – the perfect fit. Gaziano & Girling’s shoes deliver in all three areas, with superior comfort coming from the structure of the shoe, which supports the arch of the foot, and from the range of widths available.
Each of the three styles can be ordered in narrow, medium and wide widths, creating a personalised fit that is almost unheard of in women’s shoes. The quality of the materials, from the upper leather to the oak-bark soles, also elevates them above the rest of the market.
