Cambridge footwear firm grabs another retail award
North Shoes celebrate resurgence in quality footwear
Quality is the key to North Shoes’ eighth national accolade in seven years, according to managing director James North.
“There’s been a huge resurgence of quality shoes,” says the owner of the Rose Crescent store. “The smart English welted shoe is our best seller.”
North Shoes has been named independent family footwear retailer of the year for the second time in the Footwear Industry Awards and has now won more gongs than any other retailer at the awards, which salute quality and innovation in the footwear industry.
“Loke – made in Kettering by another family firm – and Austrian-made Paul Green shoes are our biggest sellers,” said James, whose family also owns and runs stores in Bourne and Stamford.
