Your Complete Guide To WALK London Footwear

We know that sticking to a budget and being on-trend can be hard, especially when it comes to shoes. Finding a smart brogue or an everyday desert boot without breaking the bank can be tough!

Looking for a brand that ticks all the boxes? WALK London is the latest on our radar. Today I had the pleasure of talking to brothers Adam and James from WALK London to give you a closer insight into the brand and some tips when buying…

WALK London is a family run business that specialises in high quality, on-trend footwear but at an affordable price. Whether you are buying for your busy summer schedule or smartening up for heading back to the office, this brand covers all bases.

Who founded WALK London? 

WALK London started over 30 years ago when Adam & James’ father set up a footwear design agency supplying the high street with their designs. The agency started in Lower Richmond Road, Putney in the early ’90s. Over the years Adam and James joined the company and after 6 years of working and developing collections for other labels, they launched their brand in 2013. 

We all design and develop the range together which works for many reasons. The key is the blend of different generations and experience coming together to create something special, ensuring we have a range that is not tailored to just one individual

Why WALK London? 

The brand is a go-to source for men who want to look fashionable and feel great. The brand’s ethos is to create high quality, fashionable products at affordable prices while being accessible to everyone. 

We never wanted to be known for just being a loafer brand, or a boot brand – we aim to produce fashionable collections every season so men can always look their best, whatever the trend!

The WALK London collection includes Chelsea Boots, Gladiator Sandals, Loafers, Trainers, Derby Shoes and Driving Style.

 Where is WALK London from? 

The clue is in the name but WALK London are a London based brand. Proud of their heritage and London roots, the distinct London city buzz influences many of their collections, providing the perfect alternatives to any occasion. 

The buzz in London is like no other, and we’ve never been anywhere else in the world that has that same feeling when you walk around. Whether you’re on a night out or heading home from work, you can walk into any pub or restaurant and it will be packed full of electricity and vibrance. We just love the atmosphere of London and  “London fashion” goes hand in hand with that

How To Clean WALK London Footwear

When it comes to cleaning your WALK London Footwear, it’s super easy.

All of the WALK London products have 100% leather uppers, meaning you can wipe them down with a damp cloth for a simple clean.

For any leather footwear, it’s important to maintain the quality with conditioning cleaning solutions and avoid using any chemicals on them that might stain or damage them.

Is there WALK London Womenswear?

Which WALK London Style Should I Choose? 

WALK London specialise in a variety of styles from brogues to sandals to trainers and loafers, all with the modern-day man in mind. All of their colour schemes and shapes are completely on trend for each season.

We asked Adam and James for their personal favourites…

Adam – “I like the Raphael loafers personally, they can be worn casually as well as smart”

James –  “For me, I love the Sunset Sandal – sandals have come back on trend in the past few years, and I think this style is just the perfect partner for summer as it goes with almost anything; jeans, chinos and shorts all look great with them so that will be my go-to for this season.”
