HERITAGE Goodwin Smith has a unique history, which started one night in a Lancashire pub way back in 1928. Two rival British shoemakers stood face to face, arguing about which of them could make the better shoe – Ernie Goodwin, and Walter Smith. They came from different backgrounds and were totally different people, but they each shared the same ideals, a passion for making quality footwear and a good night out. #buckinggoodshoes. 1928 Ernie Goodwin was a footballer for Manchester City, but one day, he put his ambition, his drive for perfection and his little bit of swagger into something different: making shoes. So too did Walter Smith, with his street smart skills acquired in the coal mines of the North and his determination to make it to the top of the shoemaking industry. After that passionate argument in the pub, Goodwin and Smith joined forces to create ‘The Bacup Shoe Company’. #buckinggoodshoes. PRESENT DAY Nearly one hundred years later, nothing much has changed. The Bacup Shoe Company is still owned and run by the same family. And they are still making quality footwear. Under Tim Smith’s leadership, a contestant on Dragons Den, the company has developed the ‘Goodwin Smith’ brand to celebrate the two founder’s intriguing characters. Like Ernie and Walter, Goodwin Smith represents the epitome of the modern man who likes to work hard and play very hard. #buckinggoodshoes.
