As you open a new box of Sons of London shoes, the first leaf of tissue paper reads ‘Born in Italy’; fold it over, and the next says ‘Raised in London.’ The beautiful packaging is not only a nod to the brand’s heritage – both its formation in England and its manufacture in Italy – but also the company’s family focus.
The brand’s definitive men’s shoe collection – from Oxfords to Chelsea Boots – comes straight from the brand’s Italian makers. In total, it takes 150 different creative steps and a team of 16 master craftspeople to produce each pair in a second-generation family-owned factory.
