After a period of decline, more than 1,700 people are working in Northamptonshire's shoe factories with hundreds more involved in the supply chain.
Now a new factory has opened in Kettering, employing local people and hoping to train young people in the craft of shoemaking.
Gaziano & Girling make shoes that cost between £900 and £6,500 to buy.
