THE WORLD'S FIRST RESOLEABLE BLAKE STITCH TRAINERS
This new collection also introduces the Blake Stitch for use in trainers. Our craftsmen have developed this process to enable quicker resoling.
The Blake Stitch stitches the upper directly to the leather lasting board, and then sidewall stitching the sole to the upper. This drastically reduces the need for glue while still offering a strong water resistant seal.
Renowned for comfort, GORAL trainers have padding, unlined leather upper and
insoles/leather lasting board making the footwear comfortable with no need for
HANDMADE IN ENGLAND
There are a plethora of brands squeezing manufacturers for every last scent, Goral is rebelling back against this mentality.
Goral understands the importance of quality craftsmanship and respects the art and value of each shoe that leaves their family factory. Goral continues to invest in their own manufacturing facility so they can oversee the full process in house from design to production and product quality. Quality control is everything to the brand and all footwear is given the Goral seal of approval before leaving the factory. The value is in the details and each pair of sneakers comes with its own dust bag to protect the shoes, thank you note and cardboard box, further reducing their use of plastic.
The planet and the country can’t withstand the current manufacturing model, by offering a new solution to the current waste coming out of the industry, Goral are doing what they can to ensure the products they create, stand the test of time and become a valued possession to their customer, not just another throwaway purchase.

Craftsmen involved in
As industry ambassadors, leading brands need to inform, educate and offer solutions to global issues, instead of always focusing on profit margins. We feel far richer producing a product we know our customers will cherish, we don’t focus purely on margins, we value British manufacture, supporting our local city and England as a whole and focusing on quality over quantity. Our products might not be as cheap as some footwear brands, but our robust quality and innovation far outweigh the short terms benefit from buying cheap footwear”.
