Give the ultimate style gift this season – a gift voucher for Harrys of London. The luxury brand is synonymous with innovative design, high quality manufacturing and modern style. Harrys of London is a quintessentially British contemporary brand. The iconic brand was conceived in London in 2001 by Matthew Mellon. The purpose was to create ‘shoes that feel like sneakers’, and the business defined a new category.
The Harrys of London concept started with the elegant, sporty lines and unique sole of the popular DOWNING loafer. Next is the soft, unstructured Basel moccasin. However, these styles which we now refer to as ‘the iconics’ were instantly popular. As a result, they became the benchmark for everything that followed.
Today, the brand continues to deliver the ultimate wearing experience for men who do not wish to sacrifice style for comfort and vice versa.
New Womens Footwear

New this season, Harrys of London is introducing Harrys For Her, the new women’s shoe line. Just like the men’s shoes, Harrys For Her are made with Harrys of London signature Technogel innersole.
These innersoles are covered in gel-filled capsules that mold to the shape of your foot. Hence, they relieve pressure and provide a one-of-a-kind fit. Perfect for that special woman in your life.
