All shoes aren't created equal.
We've worn them for years. And we don't just mean since we were old enough to walk 😎.
We've spent far too much money on high end shoes that are supposed to look good and feel good and - well - don't.
That's why we created the Arkwright from Govan Originals. Sophisticated and elegant from a distance with wonderful touches of detail that reveal themselves up close.
We wanted a shoe where we could obsess with the details. That looked incredible. That looked DIFFERENT. That fit perfectly.
A show we would feel a million pounds in just by wearing.
And a shoe that - whilst expensive - didn't cost the earth.
A Govan Original shoe is the ultimate labour of love. Designed and crafted by hands that have created tens of thousands of shoes over decades your feet will never feel so loved.
From the luxurious purple kid leather lining that fits your foot like a glove to the exclusive Harris Tweed painstakingly thread-matched to our very own leathers, Govan Originals are utterly distinctive.
Elegant from a distance yet teasingly reveal more and more detail the closer you get.
And unlike most English shoes that use a rigid Goodyear welt, Govans use a unique a flexible construction method that keeps breaking them in to a minimum.
Saying it how it is
Smell amazing!!! OK OK I know its weird and I know you dont buy shoes to smell them but they look incredible and they fit so well and that high end leather smell!
Never spent so much on shoes but am really in love. Bought the brown ones with tweed. Love them with jeans and fit is unlike anything have ever worn. trying not to be second pair before they all go!!
Always buy my shoes online and am one of them that spends a lot because on my feet all day and think they just complete an outfit. these are sick and best shoes ever.
