Cake & Shoes: Introducing Leicester’s Northern Cobbler

Northern Cobbler

Northern Cobbler, the English brand that creates handcrafted, high quality, traditional footwear for both men and women, with a witty personality, have launched their new range of sneakers, sandals, brogues and boots for Spring Summer and we’ve fallen for it hard.

The fantastic footwear brand, based on Queens Road in Leicester, is quickly getting recognition for quality and attention to detail thanks to the skill and expertise of unique craftsman that use only the best materials.

We headed along to their press event to see the ranges first hand, and to taste some of the ir delicious cakes- that’s right, cakes. Northern Cobbler is half shoe showroom and half coffee shop, a combination we think matches up rather nicely. Just as much thought has been put into their coffee shop as their shoe brand, with the owners working with a baker to create ‘on-trend’ cakes and pastries, like chewy and crisp salted caramel macarons, sweet and nutty pecan slices and much more. So if you’re after a pair of cool new shoes and a cool new hangout, then Northern Cobbler is the one. We also highly recommend their hot chocolate, it’s easily the best in Leicester.

Northern Cobbler’s showroom (and coffee shop!) is situated at 104 Queens Rd, Leicester LE2 3FL or you can visit their website to buy online and view the stockists that carry the range at
