Norman Walsh is perhaps best known for crafting the shoes Roger Bannister was wearing when he famously crushed the "unbreakable" 4 minute mile in 1954.
Nine years earlier, Walsh had left school at age 14 to learn the cobblers trade, and within three years, was selected to make the track spikes worn by the British Summer Olympics Team.
Walsh started his own footwear company in 1961.
In a world where a handful of brands dominate the sneaker industry, it is exciting to find a small company making well-crafted, good-quality shoes with care.
All Walsh sneakers are 100% Made in England.
