John Lobb has been making the finest shoes and boots for gentlemen since 1866. Its rich heritage is reinforced by timeless qualities of craftsmanship, service and style. John Lobb himself was born in 1829 in Cornwall, south-west England, but made his way to London as a young man as an apprentice bootmaker. Following a successful period in Australia making boots for the miners of the gold rush, he returned to London to set up his first shop on Regent Street in 1866.
John Lobb continues to maintain its bespoke shoe-making tradition in Paris, while also retaining core bespoke principles in the manufacture of its expanding ready-to-wear collection of shoes and leather goods.
Combining over 150 years of boot making heritage, all John Lobb Goodyear-welted shoes are made in Northampton, England. Each pair is created in a process involving over 190 steps, making each customer’s imagination a reality.
