Bolton Bros’ shoe-making roots can be traced back to 1893 when there was just a small shop in Newcastle city centre. In our current form, was founded as a limited company in 1952, and have been manufacturing orthoses and supplying an orthotic service to clinics in the North East of England since the beginning of the National Health Service. Our workshops also manufacture orthoses for many companies, NHS Trusts and private customers throughout the UK.
Bolton Bros are famous for their skills in the design and manufacture of prescription footwear for a wide range of conditions including diabetes and arthritis. Such modern “Orthopaedic footwear” is often stylish and beautifully crafted – within the limits of what is possible for an individuals clinical prescription.
Our master craftspeople are based in our workshop in Newcastle Upon Tyne where they work to create the unique, custom footwear that our customers love. Whether you require orthotic shoes, custom safety footwear or are simply looking for a high quality, hand crafted shoe, you can be assured of our high standards.
