Founder Caroline is a master shoemaker and creative visionary, establishing her eponymous couture footwear company in 2003. True to traditional techniques, Caroline Groves’ shoes are hand-sculpted, wearable collector’s items. Her passion for, and knowledge of leatherwork, needlecraft and textiles expresses the individual character of her creations, fusing a diverse range of influences into a style of rare originality.
Our exquisite collection of boots
and shoes complete every woman’s
wardrobe, including the perfect
ankle-, calf- or knee high boot, the
classic lace-up oxford, or the
statement evening shoe.
All our shoes and boots have upper
leathers sourced from the world's
finest tanneries. Leather for insoles,
soles, welting and stiffening from
the last specialist oak bark tannery
in the UK. Our shoelaces are made
for us in France.
Our upper leathers are sourced from Italy in
the main. We work with suppliers who have
the quality and traceability certificate from
the ICEC (Istituto di certificazione per l’area
della pelle – Institute Certification for leather),
the highest accreditation in the world for this
sector. Each piece is hand-selected to our
specifications to ensure the highest quality,
and the production process is optimised to
reduce energy and water consumption.
Caroline Groves advocates safe and
inspirational surroundings for our artisans.
Our bespoke and small artisanal
limited-edition production process means we
avoid any issues of over-production, making
timeless pieces that will be cherished for
many years to come.
