Locally Made Locally Soled

March 15, 2009



Locally Soled;  Stallholders at Byron Markets, selling their  handmade and locally produced footware.   These shoes would make you feel good just knowing they haven’t been produced on the other side of the globe and shipped half way around the world before they get to your feet.  Made locally, thinking globally. 
About Locally Soled;

Locally Soled is a family owned business with Adrian heading the team as cobbler and designer. Adrian learnt his trade mainly from his father whilst growing up in the small coastal town of Raglan, New Zealand. Further valuable knowledge was gained as he branched out into orthotic footwear designing and handcrafting specialised footwear based at Waikato Hospital, New Zealand. Locally Soled brings it back to casual, elegant or funky by offering a great range of handcrafted and hand dyed leather footwear and accessories. The foundations of all our products are quality, longevity and realistic prices. Locally Soled operates in the Northern Rivers Rainbow Region where the laid back style of our footwear reflects the communities who prefer handmade goods and local produce. The alternative aspect of our region provides a healthy lifestyle for raising our family. Market life is also important community activity for us as we are able to teach our kids about the significance and the preparation that goes into making and selling ones wares.

  1. The craft work on the leather looks really good.

    • Hi Bill,
      There is a man hand making soft soled shoes and boots at Byron Markets. You would have to go in person to track him down though as he does not have any electronic contact details. If you are interested l can snap you a photo of his wears and post on my blog next week.. Sound good?
      PS..If you are around Byron way this Sunday it’s markey day.
