For seven generations the Wildsmith family were purveyors of quality English footwear, serving not just the military and nobility, but also city gentlemen and fashionable society. Founded in 1847, by Matthew and Rebecca Wildsmith, they opened their first shop above a small coaching inn, off London’s Piccadilly, making and repairing boots for the Household Cavalry.

In November 2016, the Wildsmith brand was purchased by Herring Shoes. Coming in early 2018 is a brand new Wildsmith range, made in British factories using the finest craftsmanship, design and materials. We hope you will follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram etc to keep up to date with our new launch. Herring Shoes will also be stocking the new Wildsmith range on their website.
