What we do
We follow traditions of crafting great product without compromise and work with only the best manufacturers and suppliers who share our passion for craft and innovation. Our products are non-seasonal, made to last and timeless .
Block & Last footwear is manufactured in Northampton England. Our boots and shoes are made with 150 years of skill and knowledge in producing outstanding Goodyear Welted footwear and our mission is to combine age old craft with modern technology. Inspired by an original 1910 military Boot Last, our No1 boot and shoe are simple and considered in design.
Whilst staying true to craft, we strive to improve functionality. Innovative footwear parts have been added to our footwear with carbon fibre, 3D printed shanks, adding strength and support and toe and heel additions are steel 3D printed for durability
Jackets are also military inspired, the clean cut of the Block takes inspiration from the Fearnought jacket of WW2 and cut in British and Japanese loomed cloth.
We use the very best materials, indigo wool and cotton blends most of which is produced in small London Mills using 150 year old shuttle looms. We also source cloth from Japanese mills along with vintage cloth.
