Here at Golden Boot, we’re always very excited when the new season’s styles start to land in store. When the boxes arrive with that infamous black and red tape from Jeffery West, I’m always the first to dive in to take a look!
Handmade in Italy and Spain, our Jeffery West collection just keeps growing. Fuelled not only by our love for them on the shop floor, but also our fabulous loyal, regular customers who keep buying them!
We love to add a few shoes that are completely bespoke and do not even feature in the Jeffery West shops.
Beautifully made by guys who understand gents footwear, all with that Jeffery West twist. Take a look at two of my current favourites…. Very limited, seven pairs of each only… Go on indulge yourself… Life really is too short to wear boring shoes!!!
Jeffery West always cause a stir when delivered into the store – and autumn/winter 2017 has been no different…
KO23 is made of the deepest red wine and black leather. That signature diamond studded heel and immaculately intricate broguing still play a significant role throughout every season’s collection.
Blower Melly features a high-shine double monk strap – all beautifully crafted in espresso coloured leather, with a faux pony hair vamp.
A classic Chelsea boot with a JW twist. Point Dexter in grey is brought to life with its brilliantly red elastic panels, red leather lining and un-missable welt stitching.
Stay up-to-date with more incoming styles this season.
Passenger is an eye-catching style available in blue nubuck. The tongue and vamp are entirely woven and the red laces and stitching make a stunning contrast to the Atlantic shade of blue. The toe shape and diamond details makes this Derby lace-up elegant and refined.
This versatile monk shoe features a double buckle and leather woven vamp. It’s an easy-to-wear style and can be dressed up or down, but certainly does not scrimp on the immaculate details we love.
Also available in grey, black and brown, Horror Show is no ordinary Chelsea Boot. Made on their new ‘Libertine’ last, it has an unusual wine glass shaped red gusset and rioja suede back panel. Not forgetting or course, the Devil-Head Goodyear Welted sole.
Not for the feint-hearted – Amityville is a fantastically striking style with plenty of that signature diamond leather punching across the whole shoe. This classic wingtip has truly been given the Jeffery West treatment with their red and white fume leather and exquisite details.
From their Goodyear welted collection – Tiger is made up of burgundy suede and mock croc leather. The diamond shape on the front adds that true Jeffery West feel, along with the brass shark’s tooth eyelets.

March is an odd inbetweeny time when it comes to footwear. It’s still a bit chilly (I’m holding out for the day to come soon when I don’t have to wear a coat) but the sun is slowly making an appearance. Shop rails are full of brighter colour palettes and those camel chinos are calling. Shoes however, must not be forgotten at this point. Heavy black footwear doesn’t sit right with a spring or summer wardrobe, and why wait for espadrille weather when there is so much choice? Lighter options from the Men’s New Collection are filling the shelves here at Golden Boot.
Our very own Golden Boot Mulgrave is available in blue and dark red. The upper is a supple suede with a punched vamp, the lining is leather and the sole is a sturdy rubber. They’re comfortable, light, and will add just a touch of colour to an everyday outfit.
Golden Boot Reeve is another suede option. This perfect penny loafer will take you from the office to post-work dinner. They come in blue and black (with surprisingly colourful linings) and work well with chinos in spring or shorts in the summer.
Planning a holiday? Grab a pair of Pikolinos. Talking of holidays, Sebago haven’t let us down on the deck shoe front. The quintessentially preppy design is an absolute sell out every summer, and you don’t even have to own your own boat to wear a pair.
If you’re on the go all weekend, then take a look at Nebula A from Geox. The breathable sole unit has been designed specifically with your super active feet in mind.
They come in charcoal or navy suede and have flexible elastic straps across the front, making them comfortable and practical.
For more formal occasions check out Tucano from Anatomic Gel. They come in various colours and are well-known and loved for their comfort and practicality. Little details like the contrasted stitching and laces make them a great addition to a smart spring outfit, and being a leather brogue, they’re transferable from season to season.
If you’re heading out out, and really want to make a statement, then who else do we talk about other than Jeffery West? Harbour has just landed in the store – a beautiful Derby wingtip as part of their Goodyear Welted collection.
They feature a woven leather vamp and tongue, a red leather insole, embossed leather sole and those signature diamond punches on the edges and toe box. If you’re feeling extra showy then go bold with the aptly named Flash.
Mark Jeffery and Guy West. Two childhood friends with a vision of creating astoundingly unique footwear. With an upbringing enshrouded in the shoe-making history of Northampton, these guys went from re-purposing end-of- line shoes to developing a brand that has now gone state-side.
After years of not being taken seriously, Jeffery-West was established and founded in 1987, and encapsulates both the antiquity of the Northampton shoe and leather industries, and their unrelenting innovation and creativity.
At first, one may only see the brightly coloured leather, the boldy-shaped diamond punching…
The skull-wielding women on the lining and the last shapes so long and pointy they could take your eye out. Look harder. These shoes have not forgotten their history. The lines are sleek and classic, the quality of production is second to none, and the attention to detail is impeccable.
Don’t mistake the flamboyance for ignorance; these boys know their stuff, and their passion is woven into every single stitch; elegance meets cutting edge design. Time old craftsmanship shakes hands with innovation.
You only have to take a peek at their website to understand what Jeffery-West are about. Black and white images of soirees and stocking adorned women are matched with red, gothic text, and we haven’t even mentioned the canes or spankers…oops. Too late…They do offer other extras (easy now) such as wallets, umbrellas, gloves, belts, socks and coloured laces, each depicting that signature Jeffey-West style and attitude.
Talking of style and attitude, I was lucky enough to have a chat with Sharon, from the men’s department. I’m sure she was thrilled to have me chasing her around the shop with a notebook on a busy Saturday morning…(sorry!) but she knows all there is to know about these shoes and her customers. The moment you step into the menswear shop, the neo-gothic display can’t help but catch your eye. It’s intriguing, fascinating.
It lures you in with a perfectly manicured ‘come hither’ hand gesture. I mean, these shoes. They’re sexy!
Something Sharon has picked up on is how a pair of these shoes can change a man. She compares it to how some women feel when they put on a brand new pair of killer heels.
These guys stand up, check themselves out in the mirror and the shoulders go back, the chest puffs out a little, chin is raised, and the next thing they know they’re striding out of the shop into the high street beyond with a Golden Boot bag in hand and a few extra stamps on their loyalty card.
Sharon explained that Jeffery-West is about more than the shoes themselves. This is a lifestyle. Various last shapes have been named after famous influencers. Keith Richards, Steve Marriot, Terence Stamp, Oliver Reed, Peter O-Toole, Brian Jones, Jarvis Cocker, Bryan Ferry, Roger Moore…the list goes on! The design inspiration is derived from Victorian and Gothic architecture, biker gangs and flamboyant, verging on bizzare rogues throughout history.
I imagine many of the customers to be the same. Not that any of you are bizzare, but I wonder whether there is a certain characteristic that creates a desire to purchase a pair I imagine many of the customers to be the same.
An eye and appreciation for detail is a must. The tiny skull head zippers, and intricate diamond punching cannot go unseen. From the heel shape to the sole engraving, everything has been exquisitely considered.
A certain poise is necessary, and a nod to their historical context is of most importance. They’re obviously a talking point so one must be prepared to answer questions…especially if you’re carrying a cane…
A story to be continued but if you can’t wait visit Jeffery West at Golden Boot and choose your favourite design from our complete selection of Jeffery West boots, shoes and belts all with FREE UK next day delivery*
Jeffery Wests’ range of traditionally manufactured shoes with a stitch through the insole to the welt, then welt to sole. 4772 Hannibal on a chunky rubber sole features signature features with the addition of striking red laces to match the lining.
The slightly more classically styled double monk Montrose really stands out in it’s rich burgundy flume leather upper.
Blake Stitched construction is a more refined and flexible shoe construction that lends itself well to Jeffery West’s chiselled last shapes, such as Rochester and Ziggy. Italian made and truly unique standout pieces. The star attraction of the collection is the Icarus shoe in ‘dirty sober’ red high shine leather.
Made in Spain this Jeffery West range is all about clean lines. The sole units are cemented leaving a thinner sole with no welt. Signature Jeffery West styling at a lower price point. J936 Chelsea boot on the Scarface last, typifies the collection with wing tip brogue detail on burnished leather upper.
Contemporary design in suede finishes complete with the brands signature touches, flashes of red stitching and red lining. ‘Infamous’ modern styling at it’s best! The 19590 ‘Jimmy Loafer’ , available in navy suede and brown suede, is a wear with everything with classic loafer.

On Thursday evening, in celebration of our love for the brand and in honour of the excellent craftsmanship, premium quality and eye-catching designs, we hosted a unique Jeffery West evening.
Our loyal Jeffery West customers were joined by the co-owner, Guy West, for an evening full of fun, food, drink and everything Jeffery West. From Cufflinks to Canes, Scarves to Shoes, the shop was transformed into a unique Jeffery West brand experience.
The shoe personalisation by artist Aasen Stephenson was a big hit during the evening, with Guy West’s personal highlight being one customer’s choice of the words ‘Gin and Tonic’ to be tattooed onto his brand new Jeffery West boots.
A big thank you must also be given to local businesses Anno Distillers, Hush Heath Estate and Frederic Bistro for the delightful Kentish gin, English Pink Sparkling wine, cider and delicious canapés. Also Guy Salmon Maidstone who had three Land Rover Defenders parked outside for the duration of the evening.
All in all the evening was great fun and a huge success and thoroughly enjoyed by staff and customers alike. We hope this will be one of many special events to follow.

A big thank you to our many customers who have taken the time to leave a review on our website. We pride ourselves on our customer service and it is so rewarding to hear what our customers have to say. Here are just a few of those reviews:
“My very first order from you and cannot fault the service. Next day delivery and very good communications throughout. I am delighted that I have found a pair of Orla Kiely Milly shoes and they fit perfectly. Thank you very much!”- Clarks ‘Orla Milly’
“I have been looking for espadrilles like these forever! I’m so happy I found this website. Not everyone can wear 3″-4″ wedges and I’ve been so frustrated that EVERY pair of espadrilles I looked at were either 4″ or flat!!!! These are perfect, fit great-look great and I know as soon as it warms up (if it ever does) I will be living in them this summer.”- Toni Pons ‘Nuria’
“Was very easy to order online and by telephone, and the shoes were delivered very quickly and were exactly like they appeared online. Highly recommend this website.” – Primigi ‘Andes’
“Well organized, clear website, helpful sales people, reliable. Will buy again from The Golden Boot.”- R.M Williams ‘Comfort Craftsman’
“Hunter Basket Weave Welly Socks – had been searching for a pair of these for ages. Was delighted when found them on this site. Received so quickly and well packaged.
Thank you.” – Hunter ‘Kids Welly Socks’
“I love my patent blue Wonder shoes with a crepe wavy sole – perfect to go with my new silk skirt and comfortable enough to wear all night on the dance floor. Can’t wait to go out on that date!”- Wonders ‘6956 Barcelona’
“I had Nordika slippers already but they had seen better days so I ordered a replacement pair from The Golden Boot. The slippers arrived very promptly within the hour delivery slot. Will definitely use The Golden Boot again for other footwear purchases.” – Nordikas ‘Natala 234’
“I pondered about using this company as I hadn’t heard of them before but I was so desperate to get my hands on a pair of Toni Pons ( my very favourite summer shoes) I decided to give it a go. The person that I spoke to on the telephone was both charming and helpful so I ordered some shoes. I telephoned the shop at 1.22 pm and had my shoes by 9.05am the next morning. So, I just had to order some more! I had exactly the same efficient experience as before. My only regret is that this could get costly as there are still lots more Toni Pons in colours that I don’t yet have. I have already recommended this shop to friends. ” – Toni Pons ‘Nuria’ and ‘Tremp’
“My wife wanted a pair of house shoes as a present and found them on the Golden Boot site, slightly cheaper than from a competitor, so I ordered them, gift wrapped at no extra cost. She is delighted with them, and I was delighted with the prompt service. The free gift wrapping option was a really nice additional touch. Well be back!”- Nordikas ‘Nicola 305’
“Ordered the boots over the phone and these were despatched quickly and with no fuss. Would purchase again from this company.” – Barbour ‘Readhead’
“a very good web site with all the relevant information of sizing and choosing the right pair of shoes,very good choice with easy payment choices.
The communication for order confirmation delivery service excellent will definately use the Golden Boot again .”- Peter Kaiser ‘Lurkezia’
Your thoughts and comments, both good and bad, are invaluable to our business so please keep them coming!
On occasion, while striding through this flash of light bookended by two great eternities we call life. A discovery is made that reaffirms ones faith in the order of things. So although we can see the universe at the point it was just the size of a marble and when Professor Higgs has had his boson confirmed some things, such as amazing service, remain timeless.
When the going gets tough and the day job absorbs time to the extent that everything else takes second place you need to rely on other people. Such it was when discovering on Thursday that one’s dress shoes, required for an event on Friday evening, four hours drive from base, are unfit to serve as the occasion demands. This problem is of little consequence if one is a customer of The Golden Boot. A perusal of their web site reveals any number of formal shoes that might fit the bill – but what to choose. The 3D views make narrowing the field down but as to the final choice?
A call to the shop in Maidstone results in sage advice – “those won’t fit you sir”, one has been a customer for 30 plus years, “those won’t suit you sir, may I recommend, will you be collecting sir or should we deliver them to you”. So to a choice of two pairs and, as these latter delivery options were not possible it was agreed that the shoes would await me at Morston Hall in Norfolk on arrival the following afternoon.
So it proved, after leaving Greenwich as late as seemly for the trickle up the M11, through Suffolk and into Norfolk, arriving a few minutes before the required hour the shoes where there waiting as had been promised. Never for a moment did one think they would not and, such was the confidence in this, no backup plan was made. Both pairs fitted perfectly but one suited better so got the role as footwear of choice for the gathering.

Sometimes in a changing world one needs to rely on other people’s thoughtful attention to detail, knowledge of their customer and willingness to go the extra mile to make sure they are delighted, consider it done at The Golden Boot.
