THE CORDWAINER

 

Bespoke Orthopaedic Footwear Specialist.

The Cordwainer is one of the UK's most experienced orthopaedic shoemakers.  Our company has helped hundreds of people find mobility and comfort does not come at the expense of style and good looks.
We are proud of the reputation we have for helping clients with the most difficult feet and related problems finding shoes they can wear. Maybe we can help you too ?
BESPOKE ORTHOPAEDIC FOOTWEAR

The Cordwainer manufactures specialist boots and shoes for people with complex foot problems, and we work with both private and NHS clients.

YOUR INVESTMENT IN YOUR MOBILITY AND WELLBEING

Yes, bespoke orthopaedic footwear can be costly, but our customers stories show that all the effort and expense is worth it.   A first pair of shoes may cost around £1200 to £1500 and take three months to complete.

OUR GUARANTEE TO YOU

We have an excellent success rate making shoes for people with the most complex footwear problems, and we guarantee we will try our best to maintain this record. However we are not magicians, there will always be occasions when despite our best efforts we fail to reach these standards.  You should consider this when placing your order.

LINK YOUR VISITS TO A STAY IN THE PEAK DISTRICT,

We can help arrange accommodation for you in one of our great local bed and breakfasts or pubs.

WE NOW MAKE VEGAN FOOTWEAR

We have a range of man-made materials and adhesives which means we can now offer the full range of footwear to all clients. 

WORKING WITH THE NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE

We are happy to work with Hospitals, Health Centres and CCG’s (Clinical Commissioning Groups) so that you can have the service we provide but the service is paid for by the NHS.

For further details of how we can help the NHS, see under NHS and Private Footwear on the top menu,
