The iconic Shanghai, which was launched in 1929, is a style that redefined men’s footwear and continues to do so today. After an original copy of this historic shoe was found in the Northampton factory, Church’s decided to re-issue it with an intentionally vintage look. The unique combination of brogue and monk strap fully represents the innovative spirit and effortless ability to balance tradition and modernity. This new 2018 edition comes as a double monkstrap. The Shanghai takes an average of 500 steps to create and its defining characteristic is a special rubber sole built to resist wear and tear, with the logo, “CHURCH CO”, artfully designed on it.. Handmade in Italy.
