Green Shoes | Handmade | Ethical

Green Shoes was started in 1981 in Totnes Devon by a group of young women who were passionate about hand making strong,beautiful shoes that would last for years. Green Shoes has always been a collective and collaborative workplace run by women.

Ethical production remains at the heart of our business philosophy. Everything at Green Shoes is hand made by us for you from the finest materials in our workshop on Dartmoor, Devon. All our shoes and accessories are designed to be worn & loved for many years, our aesthetic is simple, functional and utilitarian.  
We are pleased to announce we have recently been listed in the top 15 shoemakers in the world for our ethical standards. Truly sustainable long lasting fashion.

People often ask "what makes you Green?"  Our reply is that our shoes are made by us here in Devon, so ethically produced, they are repairable so last for many more years than mass produced footwear less shoes going to landfill and we coined our name "Green Shoes" in 1981 in the green county of Devon.

When you order you choose the style, colour and sole from our Leather, Eco-tan and Vegan ranges. We make them to order in your size, for total comfort. Our NEW 'Off the Shelf' section showcases ready to wear, brand new styles from our shop. We thought we would show on line more of the shoes that we have in the shop, as not everyone can visit us here in Devon!
