If you get down to Brick Lane for 6pm you can hang out and have a drink with the cool kids and get the best pick of the Grenson shoes on sale ahead of the online launch the following day.
Crockett & Jones shoes certainly embody quality and a timeless aesthetic and the shoe factory shop offers a good, broad range with prices from £130, considerably less than half the usual retail price. All beautifully handcrafted shoes and all 'exquisitely English' and why, I believe, Crockett & Jones shoes are so incredibly popular with an international audience.
Tricker's have always made quality heavy brogue shoes and boots and if that's your thing then you won't be disappointed by the factory shop with discounts all at around 50%. However, if you're after something special then, as if by magic, the shopkeeper disappears to the back of the shop and returns with a truly unique English shoe.
