The only British owned, designed and manufactured sports footwear.
A range of casual shoes, adopting the same technology developed from their pure sports line and referencing the Walsh heritage in the evolution of the trainer as a street fashion staple of Northern England.
Norman Walsh started making footwear in 1945 and his exceptional skills quickly became highly sought within the sports and athletic community. He, himself handmade many of the running shoes for the 1948 British Olympic team.
In 1961 he founded Norman Walsh Footwear, still catering to the athletic and professional sports community. Today, Walsh uniquely specialise in off-road footwear, designing and constructing running-shoes adapted to the particularly demanding conditions experienced by fell runners in the North of England. The technology developed and tested in this harsh environment has resulted in the industry's highest production values with all manufacture still undertaken by just 5 staff in their Bolton production facility.
