ABOUT GOODWIN SMITH
We’ve been making shoes since 1928. To put that into a time perspective, sliced bread hadn’t been invented when we set up. No really, it wasn’t
Goodwin Smith all began — as many great things do — outside a pub less than a mile down the road from where our HQ is today. Two rival shoemakers stood face-to-face arguing about which one of them could make the better shoe – Ernie Goodwin or Walter Smith.
Each man came from different backgrounds: Ernie a Manchester City right-winger, and Walt a hardy coal miner. They soon found they shared the same ideals: a passion not just footwear but quality footwear…and a good night out on the town! After that argument outside the pub, Goodwin and Smith decided to join forces. And now, 90 years later, little has changed. Although the infamous pub is long gone.
