The new Church’s sneaker in antic calfskin with contrast gabardine lining is an off-duty ode to craftsmanship and style. This casually elegant shoe’s open lacing evokes the Derby aesthetic of the iconic Shannon lace-up. The upper’s subtle hand stitching and an embossed Church’s logo on the tongue add a layer of refinement while the white rubber sole’s circular indents, inspired by the brand’s Dainite version, provide improved grip and a pragmatic finishing touch. Available in seven different variants.
Elegance is ever-evolving and can be interpreted in a number of different ways though certain icons remain unchanged over time. These pieces are a starting point, the anchor of a look that keeps the aesthetic firmly in sophisticated ground.
One such icon is the Consul. Originally designed for diplomats working abroad, this lace-up, with its sleek silhouette and impeccable details, has always been one of our most popular styles. Its chameleonic qualities allow it to blend in seamlessly with varying aesthetics from ultra-classic formality to a more laid-back variety.
Our latest campaign breathes new life into the everyday actions of the Church’s man and woman. The season’s top styles take centre stage while an elegant, abstract play on shadows provides a more intimate narrative.
A couple enjoys a romantic moment during a weekend away; a man takes a moment to sit back and relax while another steps out of work and into the weekend.
This charming series of scenes provides the perfect backdrop to the new collection of styles that fit flawlessly into any occasion.
As a staple of today's male wardrobe, the sneaker has become an everyday fixture, presented in countless variants that cross the spectrum from sporty to sophisticated. Our very first sneaker, the minimalist Mirfield, is an ode to craftsmanship and style.
Inspired by our Shannon Derby, the shoe is made from a luxurious antic calfskin with contrasting gabardine lining and a series of exquisite details that truly set it apart. There is subtle hand stitching along the upper, an elegantly embossed logo on the tongue and circular indents on the bottom of the rubber sole for improved grip.
Today’s trends unabashedly take inspiration from vintage origins as with the Misty Derby shoe, which evokes the sophisticated saddle style of the Fifties, but with contemporary elements like an ultra-sleek silhouette and a high-gloss shine.
The Misty's bold chromatic contrast aptly reflects this duality. A soft calf leather façade is offset by a durable triple sole, making it a stylish and practical option that can satisfy a range of aesthetic appetites.
The Burwood rests comfortably along the confines of one aesthetic and the next, taking on different personalities based on the wearer and resulting in veritable style alter egos.
The shoe’s elegance quotient goes up when worn with more laid-back elements like denim, countering the casually collegiate attire. Pairing it with a more refined look has the opposite effect as the full brogue Oxford’s thick triple sole conveys its unmistakably rugged appeal. Such chameleonic qualities render the Burwood the go-to shoe for the modern-day man.
The true sign of an iconic shoe is its ability to remain innovative and current no matter the era. The Shanghai – a monk strap with brogueing and a maxi tassel detail – was first presented in 1929 for diplomats operating in the Far East and was considered a revolutionary model for the times.
Even today, in its re-issued form that is weathered by hand to achieve a genuinely vintage feel, the Shanghai maintains its one-of-a-kind status, representing the innovative spirit of Church's and its ability to capture timeless style.
Everyday ensembles take on a dapper air through the mix and match of casual staples and more formal footwear, creating a distinctive contrast of styles that is renewing the concept of casualwear. Though considered a classic, the Consul Oxford quickly turns into a statement accessory when combined with a more informal look.
The Consul’s sleek façade features double stitching along the toe cap and upper as well as a hand-applied finish and sturdy Goodyear construction, making it one of our most popular and versatile styles, whether you choose to dress up or down.
A classic spirit takes on a modern-day allure, punctuated by an unexpected dash of determination. Elegance reaches new heights.
As part of the innovative Contemporary Goodyear Welted Collection, the Leyton Derby shoe combines a sleek aesthetic with technically advanced characteristics, including a unique, 3cm rubber heel, achieving the ultimate balance between sophistication and sturdiness.
The quality of a shoe is determined by a number of factors, the foremost being the material it is made of. Raw materials are at the very foundation of a shoe, dictating its performance and lifespan as well as its aesthetic, which is why we take great care to select only the best leathers from the finest tanneries around the world to make our footwear.
Our collections are made mainly from calfskin although goat, sheep and ox leathers are used as well. Our Calf Leather is full grain and dyed with aniline, finished with a glaze to give the leather a naturally transparent and high lustre.
One of our most popular materials is called Bookbinder, treated with resins to increase firmness and create a beautiful high shine. Fume is a lighter weight option that undergoes a special process in which it is buffed by hand with an abrasive brush to enhance the leather’s intensity. Betis features a rich, deep veneer as the result of careful tanning and a particular hand finishing process that uses creams to build up a distinctive and layered finish while Rois is a corrected grain leather that features a more matt and waxier appearance. Castoro is our classic suede while the Superbuck boasts a finer nap for a smoother and softer exterior.
