We're 52 Degrees, a footwear brand
for women based in London.
We create simple, beautiful,
comfortable shoes that women love to wear.
52 Degrees began with a small group of women round a table talking about their perfect pair of shoes – they would be fashion-forward, made of good leather, and versatile enough to wear for work, weekends and going out – and they had to be comfortable too. We couldn’t find all of this in any existing shoe brand, so we decided to create our own. That’s how we came up with 52 Degrees.
Style, comfort and
luxury, all in one
easy to wear shoe
We chose our name because 52 Degrees is the latitude of our offices in North London (well to be exact, it’s 51.6, but that didn’t have quite the same ring to it) – and because a sense of place is important to everything we do. Our shoes are designed to help you navigate your world – whatever that may be.
We’re a small independent company backed by Pentland Brands, a third-generation, family-owned business who started The Liverpool Shoe Company with £100 of capital in 1932. Having Pentland behind us means we are able to make the most of their technical and manufacturing experience, whilst holding onto our design-led, independent spirit.
