A hidden gem in London

John Rushton shoes is an oasis of personal and professional service.

At the very least, it seemed like an oasis to me last Saturday. I had spent a hellish three hours in the shoe department of Selfridge’s, in the middle of the January sales. Rack upon rack of shoes was stacked up on the first floor by size, punters crawling around and under each other to see the reduced items. And the chaos meant that many of the sizes were...

Herb Visits John Rushton Shoes

John Rushton stocks wonderful shoes: sturdy Alfred Sargent brogues, Lormoc penny loafers, Sebago boat shoes, hard-to-find Sanders Playboy chukkas – the style so loved by Steve McQueen – and a range of discounted, end-of-line models from revered Northampton makers. It’s light, clean, well-stocked, and pleasantly laid out, with shoes arranged down either side and on a central display. And best of all, there’s John Rushton himself, who speaks with eloquence and enthusiasm about...

Mr Rushton is an amiable acquaintance of more than a decade.  I have lost count of the number of pairs of shoes I have bought from him and  the number of what can be called pedal tutorials I have received from him.  This is a man who can recognise a pair of Heschung hunting shoes from, oh, 50 metres; who knows that the style called Gibson in Britain is called Derby in France and Blucher in America; who when I went into his Wimpole Street shop last week was wearing brown Alonquins, narrow-bottomed, cuffed grey flannels, a grey V- neck, a gunmetal faced 1961 Rolex, blue gingham shirt and a military moustache.  Indeed, he does have about him the air of a dandiacal ex-officer.

John Rushton Shoes – a Character, Crockett & Jones, Alfred Sargent, and Cheaney

John Rushton is hands down one of my favorite shops in London.  Just north of Oxford Street, sandwiched between an EAT and a pub on the otherwise-unassuming Wimpole Street, you’ll find an amazing selection of English footwear.

Most of the time you’ll find Mr. Rushton himself presiding over the tables of English Benchmade shoes.  If you asked him what his main attractions are, I think he would tell you it’s his selection of Crockett & Jones, Alfred Sargent, and Cheaney under one roof.  I’m not knocking that at all, but for me the...
