Hotter Shoes – http://www.hottershoes.com – have a factory in Lancashire, England but some of their products are made abroad.  The company state a desire to increase production in the UK, so let’s hope they do that.  Their shoes are reasonably priced, but regrettably on their website they do not say which shoes are made in England.  You can ask or visit one of their shops and the shoes themselves state the country of origin.  I was in their Windsor shop yesterday (29.12.12) and every pair of shoes I picked up was made in England. They have a very impressive range of ladies and mens shoes, boots and slippers. They all look super comfortable and the prices are very reasonable.  This is a shoe brand that is well worth checking out and I will be back in their shop soon to buy some shoes I am sure.  Highly recommended.  Hotter are now (26.3.13) saying “all our shoes are designed and produced here in the UK”, however I understand some use Italian leather and some, despite this statement, are actually made in Italy. Hotter is now the UK’s biggest shoe manufacturer.

My new Hotter Cutlass shoes arrived today (14.2.13) – made in England – the box they came in is made in England too.  They even came with a free shoe horn.  Super comfy, very lightweight, great quality.  Fab.

http://www.williamlennon.co.uk

Established in 1899 to service the then burgeoning local quarrying and lead mining industries with quality work boots, William Lennon have been manufacturing their ‘ruff-lander’ and ‘A L White’ branded footwear in their current Peak District premises since 1904.  They are now the only remaining heavy duty safety, foundry and agricultural boot manufacturer in the UK. They are also stockists and distributors of other footwear brands and styles, some of which like Solvair boots and shoes are made in the UK but others, like CAT, are not.

William Lennon are manufacturers and distributors of men’s industrial, agricultural and country footwear – steel toe cap, safety boots, safety shoes, work boots and rigger boots, including some specialist items such as large sizes, vegetarian and vegan styles and lightweight composite toe boots. As well as the occupational footwear they run a range of dealer boots, shepherds boots and Solovair boots and shoes. Their prices are very competitive and include free P & P.

William Lennon have fab range of boots and are well worth a look.  I have a pair of Rufflander S14 boots and they are very comfortable.
