We are specialists in making stylish wide and deep fitting shoes. We are the only company that offers shoes in V (E-EEE), EE, 2V, 4E, 6E, 6V and 8E fittings ensuring "the perfect fit for wider feet"TM.

Our shoes, whether made in our own factory in Rushden, Northamptonshire, or in one of our partner factories, are developed by us in the UK and made exclusively for us. They are manufactured using our own custom-developed lasts, ensuring deep and wide toe boxes for a comfortable fit in the toe area. Many styles are adjustable in their design allowing for easy access or adjustment during wear. Many styles have removable insoles to allow for increased depth or to allow the insertion of your orthotic device.


Though footwear manufacturing in England has declined over the years, DB Shoes has bucked the trend with UK production increasing recently to cope with increased demand. Many of our shoes have been made at our Rushden factory, by experienced craftsmen with a sympathetic eye for detail. Look out for this symbol which shows that the style has been made in England.


At DB Shoes, we have an on-going program of research, development and quality control which ensures that the footwear, whether made in England or by one of our partner factories abroad, continues to delight customers in terms of fit, quality and styling.

Our shoes are made by experienced craftsmen using a mixture of traditional skills and the latest robotic technology. They are made to last!
