The Pembrey, part of our historic collection, is a lightweight, casual loafer with a small, gimped tongue and double-stitched apron. The shoe is unlined, making it cooler to wear and ideal for warmer weather.
The style was constructed using the Goodyear method, ensuring unparalleled durability and the possibility of refurbishment in the future, and features a leather sole on which the Church’s logo and the company's provenance, 'Northampton England' are heat-embossed.
Seasonal switches often mean unpredictable weather conditions and unexpected encounters with the elements, which is why your shoe collection should always be up to the challenge. The Shannon Derby shoe fits the bill, maintaining the style standards of a modern-day gent.
One of our most iconic models, this exquisite lace-up is made from a single piece of flawless leather and considered much more elegant than its sportier origins might imply. In addition to a sturdy Goodyear construction, the shoe also features an ultra-durable and thick triple sole whose storm welt helps keep water out.
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.
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.
Low key looks can be transformed by the simple sheen of a well-shined shoe. This small, but important detail, evokes a natural air of refinement that shifts the tone of an ensemble, taking on a more formal key.
The Chetwynd, a classic Oxford, features a unique polished finish, which is applied to top quality leather for an exquisite and deep shine. Full brogueing and gimped edges add exceptional finishing touches to an already noteworthy style
Sometimes, the simplest color combinations are the most refined. The black and white duo is among the most iconic, evoking a sharp and polished aesthetic that makes a distinctive first impression.
The Laverstock effortlessly complements such minimalist ensembles, presenting a straightforward and sophisticated lace-up with decorative elements such as its subtle semi-brogueing and a medallion on the toecap.
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.
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.
The key to off-duty dressing is striking the right balance between refinement and relaxation. A sleek, polished lace-up provides the perfect formal accent to offset a more informal ensemble.
The Grafton Derby shoe is a solid selection – wingtips with intricate brogueing and gimped edges and a unique, hand-applied finish embellish a thick triple sole to create an all-around style with polished practicality.
The classic lace-up has proven time and again to be a versatile style, unexpectedly showing its chameleonic colors as it is easily paired with an ever-varying range of ensembles. Worn with an office-ready look, the lace-up takes on an elegant air, seamlessly maintaining the formal quotient. When the aesthetic takes a casual turn, on the other hand, the iconic style transforms into a cool and contemporary finishing touch.
The Laverstock lace-up with its sleek silhouette and subtle details is destined to become a wardrobe staple that will effortlessly accompany you from look to look, season to season.
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.
The beauty of a hand-crafted shoe lies in the subtleties, which tend to really distinguish themselves when presented in earthy, natural hues. The shading of the Burwood WG, a feminine reinterpretation of the eponymous Oxford for men, truly brings out the fine details of the broguing and gimped edges, contrasting nicely with the darker-tinged sole. The whole-cut Shannon Derby shoe showcases the unique results of hand-applied finishing while the ochre complexion of the Lana R is complemented perfectly by the gold-coloured buckles of its double straps.
The casual modernist is a smooth operator when it comes to dressing down with distinction. Laid-back ensembles take on a polished veneer when paired with the right footwear – loafers are an ideal choice as opposed to their laced-up counterparts.
The Pembrey penny loafer takes center stage, representing relaxed refinement to a T. Lightweight and unlined, this historic style is cooler to wear, making it perfect for seasonal transitions. A Goodyear construction and a leather sole add exceptional durability to the mix.
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.
Start off the season on a casual note with a fresh new look that combines simplicity and style. The palette is of the monochrome variety, leaving the focus on key accessories like the Ledstone double monk strap shoe.
The Ledstone features a slightly elongated silhouette for a sleek aesthetic, embellished with subtle details like double stitching along the toecap as well as a Goodyear construction, flexible sole and special hand-applied treatments that leave the leather ultra-soft and one of a kind.
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.
