Paul Sargent

Southampton, England



Based in Northamptonshire, the shoemaking capital of the UK, Paul Sargent continues his family tradition using techniques used by generations to produce some of the UK’s finest shoes.

Bacon, beans and fried egg, cooked on the camping stove overlooking a lake, is the perfect way to start the day. We are in Northamptonshire, the heart of the world-renowned English shoemaking region, to meet Paul Sargent from Alfred Sargent shoes, a fourth generation shoemaker. Alfred Sargent has been synonymous with quality English shoemaking since 1899. We met Paul at the company’s premises in Rushden, Northamptonshire, a spot it has occupied for over 100 years.
