HB was initially based in Bond Street in the West End of London, the home to many prestigious fashion outlets since the 18th century. The first entry in our handwritten accounts from 1964 was from Harrods and since then HB has pioneered the introduction of quality Italian footwear to London’s most esteemed retailers and later throughout the rest of the UK and Ireland. HB source footwear from other European manufacturers. We are always looking for the best quality and designs available to add to our stable of brands. HB Italia and HB Made in Italy Moccasins and Pumps are handmade in the Tuscan hills around Florence where our craftsmen select premium materials to painstakingly create beautiful shoes. We have also developed the HB Espana range of premium occasion wear and distribute brands such as Ara, Rohde and Steptronic across the UK.
