Our History

Henry Maxwell was founded in 1750. We began as a famous spur-maker, thriving on the use of the horse for battle, ceremony, hunting, sport and personal transport. By the early 19th century we were prospering internationally, exhibiting at the 1851 Great Exhibition and we were awarded the first of our many Royal Warrants by King George IV. By the early 20th century we had grown dramatically, supplying boots, shoes and a wide range of riding and hunting accessories across the British Empire from shops in London and Paris.

Today, we still make our fully bespoke boots and shoes in our London workshop for clients across the world.
