1. How do I know which size to choose?
Although CHURCH’S has its own size scale, we show sizes on each product page relevant to the size for the country or region you are accessing the website from (e.g Italy sizing for the Italy site). You can also view our size conversion chart. Most of our shoes are found in both full and half sizes.
CHURCH’S men’s shoes are sized by both length and width. While the length measurement for our shoes follows general shoe sizing, the precise width measurements can vary between lasts used, therefore we group these into three widths from standard to wide: F, G, H.
For a more comprehensive explanation on how to find your perfect fit please view our Size & Fit Guide.
We offer free returns on all items bought on www.church-footwear.com so, if in doubt, we always recommend ordering multiple sizes to try on at home.
2. What is a last and why is it important?
A last is the solid structure on which the shoe is constructed around. The last gives the shoe its shape and fitting properties and will also give the shoe a specific heel height, toe shape, width and size.
The majority of our shoes are made on a last, each of which is identified by a number. If you find your perfect pair of CHURCH’s and love the shape and fit, you may want to purchase your next pair by choosing a style crafted on the same last.
We have a number of popular last shapes, some of which have been around for decades. For a more comprehensive explanation on lasts please contact our client services department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. What is a Goodyear welt?
The Goodyear Welt is synonymous with quality handmade English shoes. A time consuming construction process, it involves sewing a welt (strip of leather) between the upper and insole and then into the sole. This helps prolong the life of a shoe by preventing water penetration and allowing for repeated resoling, thus lengthening the lifespan by years or even decades.
CHURCH’S is famous for its Goodyear welted construction which it has been using for over a hundred years and the majority of our shoes are made in our factory in Northampton using this method. The construction type is stated within the ‘Product Details’ section of each dedicated product page on our website.
4. How do i look after my church’s?
A pair of CHURCH’S can last years or decades, depending on how well you care for them. Although we can fully refurbish the soles of your Goodyear shoes, we cannot replace the uppers which is why regular cleaning and polishing is important.
A few key steps can prolong the life of your CHURCH’s, we recommend:
Avoiding wearing your shoes in bad weather, try to keep them dry
Rotate your pairs, allow time for them to dry before wearing again
Using a shoehorn to put your shoes on
Inserting a shoe tree as soon as your take off your shoes
Cleaning and polishing your shoes every two to three weeks
Preventing soles from becoming completely worn down - we won’t be able to repair them
Storing them in their original box, away from light and dust
For a comprehensive guide on caring for your shoes, please view our Shoecare Guide.
5. Can you repair my Church’s?
CHURCH’S is famous for using the Goodyear construction, which because of the presence of the welt, allows for easy refurbishment. We recommend our Goodyear welted shoes be sent to our Northampton repairers for a full service - they’re the experts after all.
Some of our more streamlined styles and our women’s shoes may be constructed using a Blake stitch, which means only the soles and heels can be replaced. As we cannot guarantee a perfect outcome, we unfortunately don’t offer a repair service for Blake stitched shoes or sneakers.
If shoes have been previously repaired by an unauthorised third party, we will be unable to offer a repair.
For more information on our repairs service, please view our Repairs page.
6. What is the store appointment service?
If you’re new to CHURCH’S or simply need a little help in choosingthe right size, fit or style for you and can’t find the information you need on our website, we recommend making an appointment with a team member in your local store.
During the appointment, a member of the store team will take you through our collections, talk to you about CHURCH’S heritage, the craftsmanship required to create our shoes and help you to find the perfect style, size and fit to suit your requirements.
