Made in Britain

Designed to be worn alone or with our very own 'Padotics'. The deep footbed within these shoes offers high comfort during wear. Our innovative Padotics ensure that the comfort and corrective support can again be achieved simultaneously.

Memory Foam

Guaranteed to keep you comfy at home, all our slippers offer the benefits of memory foam, for sublime underfoot comfort.

Ultra Comfort

Styles designed with removable padded footbeds for supreme underfoot comfort.

Padders' reputation is based on over 100 years experience of quality shoemaking, coupled with a forward thinking strategy and considerable investment in technology and innovation. Padders have the concept of comfort so well sewn up that feelgoodfeet™ is our very own trademark. It's a word that 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!

Most of our shoes have leather uppers, linings and cushioned leather insoles. They are made for maximum comfort with padded collars around the heel to perfectly support the foot. Most of Padders shoes are also adjustable, to facilitate easy access and ease of use. A wider fitting is made possible by removal of the footbed. This also allows orthosis to be added where required.

Here at Padders we offer a huge range of men's and ladies wide fitting, comfort leather footwear. A variety of lace up and touch and close casual walking shoes with leather uppers, linings and insoles. The soles are made from PU giving a hard wearing, lightweight sole.

Elegant evening shoes made from super soft nappa leathers in beautiful designs.
Ankle and full length soft leather boots with low heels - great for town or country.
Memory foam slippers in a huge range of colours - beige, navy, teal, pink, burgundy, brown, black ,camel, pink, lilac and red.
Wellingtons in great fun designs.
