There are times we encourage you to be fashion-forward and try new things – like wearing socks with sandals or sneakers with suits – but when it comes to formalities and dress shoes, sometimes it’s best to stick to traditions.

We tried branching out in the past with different silhouettes – who can forget the long elf-like shoes of the early 2000s, most commonly seen waiting in long nightclub queues – and it’s safe to say, we learnt our lesson.

Heritage brands, like Church’s, Tricker's and Grenson, have kept their prominent position in the dress shoe game for centuries because they’ve kept their look classic. Maybe there’s something in the water at their Northampton factories, or it’s their meticulous attention to every single stitch, whatever it is, their shoes transcend all trends, and with the right care, will last you a lifetime.
