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. New designs will be coming in April 2017.
