Comfort, technology and design
Clearly the world, footwear and fashions have changed immensely since family run business T Groocock & Co (Rothwell) Ltd was founded in 1914. Its origins lie in the manufacture of footwear in the UK and worldwide - a role requiring a very broad and detailed understanding of footwear design, manufacture and component resourcing.
Such extensive shoe making experience provided an invaluable base when T Groocock launched its own brand Padders, which now forms their core business.
Padders' reputation is based on nearly 100 years experience of quality shoemaking, coupled with a forward thinking strategy and considerable investment in technology and innovation.
What makes Padders' shoes so comfy?
It's all about feelgoodfeet™, Padders' own unique system of design and manufacture producing exceptionally comfortable and supportive footwear. feelgoodfeet™ has been independently recognised by the industry's premier research and testing organisation SATRA; who gave Padders feelgoodfeet™ one of the highest ever scores, in their footwear Comfort Index tests.
Comfort is our trademark
Padders have the concept of comfort so well sewn up that feelgoodfeet™ is our very own trademark. It's a word the sums up our unique approach to creating the ultimate in comfy footwear for men and women, with styles and materials based on exhaustive research into the physiology of feet. Using our own systems of design and manufacture, we've gone right back to basics to work out how shoes can be made lighter, more comfortably supportive and durable. Result - feet that feel good from dawn 'till dusk!
A wider fitting is made possible by removal of the footbed. This also allows orthotics to be added where required.
