This classic Oxford shoe was made by the George Webb factory.
George Webb and his two sons, Dennis and Frank established the business in 1927. They manufactured men’s welted footwear at the Mentone Works in Brockton Street, Kingsthorpe Northampton. The works were extended in 1935 and again in 1967. In the 1960s they also opened factories in both Wellingborough and Walgrave.
George Webb made beautiful men’s shoes under the brands of Mentone, Castillo, World-Walk and Savile Row.
