Established in 1899, Alfred Sargent Ltd. has been creating leather shoes for over 100 years. With sons, Frank and Harry, the Alfred Sargent shoe company grew to be one of the most recognised shoe brands in Northamptonshire, with national sales & global recognition.

The organisation was incorporated from humble beginnings, but as it grew, Alfred moved the factory to Portland Road in Northampton.

At the time the Portland Road factory was considered revolutionary because it was the first factory to use electricity as opposed to oil lanterns.

As the years went by the next generation of the Sargent family entered the business, capitalising on the increasing demand for luxury footwear in the Northamptonshire area. By now the Alfred Sargent brand was beginning to represent both quality & elegance.
