Shoes for blokes that like to be themselves

Handmade Customised Shoes

Jim Charles Shoes are unique, just like you. With almost 60% of your day spent standing on your feet, we think it's important that you use that time to express yourself. A man expressing himself is confident, powerful and memorable. Jim Charles gives you the opportunity to design your own pair of handmade customised shoes and to truly be different from the rest of normality - whatever that is.

"Whatever you do in life, just be yourself son."

Jim Charles

Our Founder, Simon Bourne with Grandad, Jim Charles, the inspiration behind the brand. Circa 1986.


Jim Charles Shoes isn't for anyone. We're not focused on enriching a corporate entity - we only want customers who love what we're about and who share our values.

Our Designers are all independent owners of the Jim Charles brand. Our members are all customers, or friends of our customers. We're a community of like-minded blokes who love quality shoes, who cares about themselves, and cares about other people.

We are a shoe brand that believes in the power of creativity, enabling you to truly be yourself. This is so much more than a pair of shoes. It's an extention of who you are, a unique experience, a community and a true product with true meaning.
