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. 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.
Once you've walked 500 miles with our robust rubber-insert heels you'll walk 500 more. #dadadada
