Gaziano & Girling is a unique shoe company. Founded in 2006 by Tony Gaziano and Dean Girling, it has become the most innovative and versatile shoemaker in England, combining handcrafting and manufacturing skills to put itself at the top of both the bespoke and benchmade industries. Tony and Dean worked for a variety of bespoke makers, designers and manufacturers before coming together to launch Gaziano & Girling. Their aim was to bring a new look and quality standard to a sometimes somnolent industry, with fresh designs in bespoke and both greater handwork in their benchmade shoes. The result is beautifully made footwear that suits men both young and old, conservative and contemporary. Traditional English models are updated with touches of continental flair – in the shape of the last, the finesse of the waist and sharp designs – that together raise a functional shoe into a work of art.
