Swedish footwear brand Shepherd, which is celebrating its 30th year in business, is expanding its UK offer.
The brand supplies sheepskin slippers to UK retailers such as Jones Bootmaker, Johnsons Shoes and The Natural Shoe Store. It will offer its entire collection, comprising both men’s and women’s boots and shoes in indoor and outdoor styles, in the UK from the end of June.
Despite competition from brands such as Ugg Australia, Shepherd is confident that its quality of production will give it an edge. Each design is made from natural products, comprising 28 separate pieces that are individually assembled and finished by hand. The brand emphasises transparency in its manufacturing process and aims to be eco-friendly.
Wholesale prices range from £15 to £30 for men’s and women’s slippers and £40 to £80 for men’s and women’s boots.
