088 – A Visit to a Footwear Factory – Crown Northampton

 Join me on a tour round Crown Northampton’s footwear factory

In this episode I chat to Chris Woodford, owner of Chancery Footwear, the factory which makes the Crown Northampton collection, and Mark Higgs, brand manager for Crown Northampton.

Launched only a couple of years ago, Crown Northampton is quite different to the other shoemakers in the famous footwear town. Instead of making the traditional Goodyear-welted shoes which the region is known for, Crown’s signature product is a leather sneaker.

Hear how Chris has completely reinvented the family business, which was founded by his great-grandfather in the early 1900s, to create a growing made in England footwear brand for the 21st century.

Already very successful in Japan, Chris and Mark have big plans for the future of the Crown Northampton brand.
