Our Founder

 I founded Blackstock & Weber because I wanted to make quality, English footwear accessible to everyone while decreasing the carbon footprint within the second most wasteful industry on the planet. 

I was inspired by William Morris' writings on 'sustainable luxury' which stressed creating well made and affordable products and designing them to elevate a once utilitarian product to the status of artwork.

 With this in mind, I reached out to a 3rd Generation factory producing some of the best footwear in the industry, built a kick a** customer experience and obsessed over every skin and stitch until we'd reached our definition of perfection. 

People always ask me why I went for English made. My answer is always the same. 'They've been making them the same way since the 15th century... They have to be doing something right.
