Established in 1995 to tend to the footwear needs of the modern man, Base London was the brainchild of an already extremely successful manufacturing organisation, Tregarron.
Base London was launched at the same time as guys began to have their style dictated by dedicated men’s fashion magazines, sculpting not only their look, but also their attitude and confidence.
With an overwhelming passion for delivering incredible footwear, Base London is also renowned for being confident, energetic, sociable and cheeky, not taking themselves too seriously but at the same time being serious about shoes.
Although the brand Base London was established in 1995, the brand’s owner David Conibere had already amassed many years of experience within the footwear industry. A manufacturer of commercial fashion focused footwear for over 40 years and a major supplier to high street retail giants including Marks and Spencer, Next and Debenhams, David has also supplied some of the world’s leading footwear and accessories labels such as Kenneth Cole. David’s production company, Tregarron, works in close association with the Brand and enables Base London to stay dominant within the men’s footwear market both in the UK and overseas.
It is not solely innovative and contemporary design that makes Base London stand out. The high levels of craftsmanship, attention to detail and finish to each pair provides a product that lasts. Mixing modern manufacturing techniques with traditional elements and hand crafting, allows Base London to create collections that are both versatile and durable yet each pair is finished in their own unique way.
The Brand’s own quality control team ensures that the highest standards of production are maintained, inspecting each style at every stage of construction whilst also ensuring that its products are manufactured in the most ethical way.
Base London has an in-house design and development team withover 130 years of expertise in all areas of shoe design and construction and are proud of the level of innovation and creativity in every range they present each season. Base London supplies all types of manufacturing methods from cemented to stitched and vulcanised to strobel constructions.
