If it was about selling shoes, I'd have gave up long before I went bankrupt.

“IT IS NOT ABOUT WHAT YOU DO IN YOUR UNIQUE SHOES. IT IS ABOUT HOW YOU FEEL WHEN YOU DO IT”


SIMON BOURNE  #THESHOEGUY
FOUNDER OF HAND DYED SHOE CO. AND MEN'S MENTAL HEALTH EXTRAORDINAIRE
SIMON BOURNE

“Like many entrepreneurs, my creativity is driven my by an urge to express myself. I am who I am, an over thinker, anxiety sufferer and never more than an hour away from my worst moment. I'm also the most positive man you'll ever meet, a dreamer and an influencer intent on spreading love.

I'm a rescuer, I'm thoughtful and I'm kind. I'm lazy, neglectful and stubborn. It took me almost 33 years for me to accept myself for who I am. 

By being this open, I can express myself freely and live my most honest, authentic life happy that whatever happens tomorrow, I accept it. 

Hand Dyed Shoe Co. is an extension of me. A heart on sleeve brand that will always, always put the person before profit. I hope you love what you find."

BE UNIQUE

My mission is to change the way the world buys shoes by offering our customers the ability to design their own through a memorable and unique customer experience. I have an incessant ambition to create happiness and excitement for every customer we meet and my message to you is simple...

During your life, you'll buy hundreds of shoes. Very few you'll ever remember buying. You'll remember these ones.

BACK IN THE BEDROOM

Hand Dyed Shoe Company began in 2014 in the spare bedroom, firstly crafting small key rings and accessories from scrap leather from the furniture trade. From here, I began to piece together a vision of individually made, artisan bespoke shoes. The very first pair sold in 2016, to Colin Elrick, a former bookseller from Chester-le-Street, Durham. I cried tears of celebration, joy, shock and excitement.

Since then, HDSCo has developed into an award winning, globally recognised brand crafting thousands of unique shoes celebrating individuality and creativity amongst thousands of gentlemen all around the world, spreading happiness to many loyal customers and friends.

I am the proudest man on Earth.

Size Guide

Work Out Your Size

To determine your size:


1. Use a ruler or tape measurer to measure your foot (from the heel to the tip of your longest toe).

2. Choose a table below

3. Find the closest measurement, in inches, that is equal to or greater than the length of your foot. For example, a man whose foot measures 11 1/4 (11.25) inches is a size 11.5.


MEASURING TIPS


• Make it easier by drawing around your feet with a pen placed at 90 degrees and flush against your skin.

• To ensure an accurate reading when measuring, flatten your foot by shifting your weight forward.

• If your measurement is between two sizes, always move up to the larger size.

For your width, you don't need to measure. Base your choice on what you normally buy on the high street. If you typically order a size 10, but you feel like you do this because of width, order a 'G Wide' fit.


If you're unsure, simply get in touch with us and we will post you a size guide out along with some complimentary tape measures to help you work it out more specifically.

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!

Mr. Mark Goward


What Mark doesn't know about shoes isn't worth knowing. With over 25 years in the industry, Mark is the ultimate Shoe Dog.


Mark's first pair of Hand Dyed Shoe Co. shoes were also his first pair of monkstraps! A divine oxblood and crimson combination, complete with a matching belt and stunning deep black, burnished patina.


Mr. Goward is all about the detail. You won't be short of options or inspiration in The Rooftops!
