A Great British Brand - Harrys of London
This month we look at another British brand that has made great strides in the men’s accessories category over recent years, bringing a playful element to tradition and refusing to compromise on either style or comfort. Whilst we are considered by many to be staunch traditionalists, we embrace dynamic brands with a difference. We also love to indulge ourselves and our customers, understanding that now more than ever, we want clothing and accessories that are not only stylish, but versatile and a pleasure to wear too.
When Harrys of London was conceived in 2001 with the purpose of creating ‘shoes that feel like sneakers’, the brand pioneered a new category. The concept started with the elegant, sporty lines and unique sole of the popular DOWNING loafer, followed by the soft, unstructured BASEL moccasin. These styles, now referred to as ‘the iconics’, were instantly popular and became the benchmark for everything that followed.
Take the Balance derby, for example. This suede lace-up features brogue detailing as sleek and chic as on any traditional shoe – but offers so much more in the comfort stakes. A smart office shoe with sneaker DNA, as with all Harrys shoes, the Balance boasts the brand’s signature Technogol 3D innersole – a series of gel capsules that mould to the shape of your foot to relieve pressure and provide a customised fit. There’s also an extra light stacked sole and internal padding on the upper so they fit like a glove from day one.
Often travel for business? Harrys has got you covered with its Edward loafers – a unique slip-on with an optional collapsible heel that looks great in boardroom or bar. Those with a fashion forward flair, meanwhile, will find much to love in the bold Bolt sneaker and more understated Tom design – the perfect additions to your weekend wardrobe.
Harrys of London has quietly built a high profile following, actors Richard Madden, David Harewood and Jack Fox regularly step out in Harrys of London. The brand has also been seen adorning the feet of actors Damian Lewis, Richard E Grant and Taron Egerton, Jonah Hauer-King and journalist / documentary maker Louis Theroux. You’ll find Harrys of London alongside the Ham Yard Hotel in Soho, on Grafton Street in Mayfair and on Park Avenue, New York. A third London store will open on Belgravia’s Motcomb Street in November and of course, they have a strong presence and shop online.
Hand made in Italy using the finest materials, every aspect of creating a Harrys shoe is directed towards delivering a perfect blend of comfort and style.All Harrys of London shoes are engineered for comfort. From the materials used to the emphasis on flexibility and in reducing weight in the construction. But the final piece of the puzzle is that every Harrys of London shoe is built around their signature Technogel 3D innersole, covered in gel-filled capsules that mould to the shape of your foot, relieving pressure and providing a one-of-a-kind fit. They never harden, they never lose flexibility and feel just as comfortable on day one as on day 10,001.
Walking in a pair of Harrys shoes is a lot like having a personal reflexologist accompanying you all day.
