About us

Handcrafted For Comfort

Sledgers has been refining its comfortable, lightweight and versatile men’s shoes since 1921. All that experience has led us to a perfectly formed collection of smart, wearable styles for any occasion.

Every pair of Sledgers is handmade in Portugal from the finest leathers and incorporates our trademarked comfort technologies.

In fact, we’re so confident in the comfort of our shoes that we offer a 30-day comfort guarantee.

 

 European Craftsmanship

Our shoes are designed in London - with an on-the-go, urban lifestyle in mind - and handmade to our exacting standards by expert shoemakers in Portugal.

We’re proud to make quality footwear for men that is smart, seasonless and above all, crafted for comfort.

Comfort Technology

Quality, style and above all, comfort are our calling cards.

Our lightweight, flexible shoes are made from soft, supple leathers and finished with featherweight outsoles, for comfort and stability in every step.

Our trademarked Flex&Move technology ensures every element of our shoes is soft, flexible and stable.

Soft Step insoles and cushioning in every Sledgers shoe, reduces impact with shock-absorbing layers, to perfectly support your foot.

Sledgers shoes are made in three fittings – standard, wide and extra wide – so you can find your perfect fit. 

 Premium Leather & Nubuck

To make the best quality, most comfortable shoes, we're very picky about the materials we use.

We prefer full grain leather. Its dense, firm fibres make it extra durable and give it a smooth, sleek look.

Even better is full grain aniline. This naturally textured leather can be dyed to create deep colours that darken beautifully with age.

And, though it needs a bit more looking after, tactile nubuck is another favourite for its velvety appearance and soft feel.
