About Green Shoes
Now, more than ever, Green Shoes is a radical shoemaking business. We make footwear on a small scale, by hand, in our Devon workshop, using skills learnt and passed on through decades. We endeavour to keep our environmental impact low by making our footwear long-lasting and repairable.
Our designs are simple and timeless, untethered to throwaway trends. You can make your footwear unique by choosing the colour(s) of leather or vegan material and soling material your shoes are made from. We have relationships with established leather factors who supply us with shoe grade leather, including industry waste that large shoe manufacturers no longer want.
All footwear is handmade to order in full and half sizes from UK 2- 12, in four different width fittings. We make our high boots in three leg widths. We also have a stock of standard sized shoes in our shop.
We work from foot drawings that can be drawn by us in the shop, or sent to us in the post. These are used to establish which size to make, therefore the size you select online is only a guide for our shoemakers. As each pair of shoes is made to order, please allow for making time.
