In 1936 Franciszek Goral opened his first small workshop in Poland to handcraft shoes for the local villagers. Since then, GORAL’s passion for high quality shoemaking has been passed down through four generations of the Goral family and remains a family business today.

As a leading British footwear company that has supplied shoes to leading brands globally for over 80 years, GORAL is renowned for crafting with skill and precision.

The team of 40 craftsmen, many of whom have been with GORAL for over 20 years, are intrinsically part of GORAL’s foundation.

GORAL is today run by the Great Great Grandson of Franciszek Goral - Dominik Goral. With the core values and ethos remaining constant, GORAL is a leading British premium footwear brand.
