About Thomas Bird
Beautiful quality, affordable prices
The Thomas Bird story really started over 30 years ago when my father began working with major footwear brands, helping them import shoes from Italy. He formed the initial contacts with many small, 'artisan' factories and learned about the skills and strengths of each.
In 2004, we set up our first website to sell a range of branded footwear online. This went well and we were then hired by a well known English heritage shoe maker to build them a new website to sell worldwide.
Although fans of high end English shoes, we were looking for something more. We had always loved the flair, elegance and refinement of high end Italian shoes. Available in Knightsbridge at £300+ they were out of the price range of most shoe lovers. Especially as you need several pairs, depending on the mood and occassion.
So in 2013, we decided to combine our experience to launch Thomas Bird. Working directly with Italian artisan makers and offering beautifully made Italian shoes at affordable prices.
The first range was designed and produced in 2014. The styles have been well received and have been sold around the world, including USA, Europe and the Far East.
