Showcase on the Golden Boot - a long-loved Kent institution.

Updated: Nov 16

The Golden Boot is truly unique – they are the longest-running, family-owned and independent shoe shop in the country with a history spanning back to 1790! Seven generations of shoemakers, merchants and traders have shaped and moulded the Golden Boot into the highly respected and established institution it is today.

Once a single residence in Gabriel’s Hill, Maidstone, Kent - the Golden Boot has come a long way since its establishment and since the expansion of its Ladies’ Shop in 2018, now occupies eight residences, including the original site. With a passion for innovative store design [you should see the train track running through the Children’s shop!], unique products and world-class customer service, the Golden Boot continues to stand out from today’s homogenised high street.

The sustainable move The Golden Boot are committed to limiting their impact on the environment which they do currently by working with the responsible brands they stock, along with reusing and recycling their packaging where they can.

Fleet Luxury specialises in producing innovative, luxurious, ethical solutions and embraced the project to move the Golden Boot away from their plastic bags and onto a more sustainable solution. Our skill in providing premium packaging solutions, expertly tailored to each client’s distinct individual needs, has gained us the support of key luxury leading brands as well as entrepreneurial independents across all sectors. They trust us to create beautiful packaging that always remains faithful to their ethos, without costing a fortune.

And the results are beautiful.

The new packaging is made from certified 100% recycled uncoated paper, embellished with recyclable foil and then finished with water-based glues. With the refined cotton handles, it makes this whole bag fully recyclable.

“Our new packaging looks fantastic,“ said Edward Martin, 7th Generation and Managing Director of The Golden Boot “it reflects the brand impeccably, looks great and is heading us in the right direction sustainably. We’re currently working on a new eCommerce packaging solution which I’m really excited about. We have been working with the team at Fleet for years now and cannot fault their advice, service and professionalism.”
