THE SEMINARY


Probably the only shoe emporium in the world that is set on the first floor of a 19th century former seminary, this is the home of Hand Dyed Shoe Co. Our unique hand drawn wallpaper and delightful leathery scent awaits on the President's Gallery where your Shoe Guy will guide you through your fitting and consultation.

The Shoe Guy

Mr. Simon Bourne


Simon Bourne, Founder of Hand Dyed Shoe Co. is, as you can see, a little bit different to 'norm' - whatever that is. 


Mr. Bourne's flair for colour, mixing pallets and experimenting with texture is well amongst the HDSCo brand legends.


Simon's favourite shoes are a pair of hand dyed blackberry Derby brogues - perfect for the dance floor, apparently!
