Early Days is a family run business founded in 1952 by two brothers Tony and Michael Bolton. The young brothers started by cutting the shoes out by hand in their parents house and 12 months later moved into a small unit employing just 3 people. Within a short space of time they expanded as the company’s two brands Early Days and Baypods grew in popularity selling all over the UK and overseas. Michael’s sons joined the business during the 1980’s and the company expanded further employing over 100 people producing in excess of 10,000 pairs of shoes a week. 2013 saw the advent of a brand new concept the “Leather Collection”, a range that gained immediate success when launched at the Bubble exhibition that January. The following year Prince George was seen regularly wearing Early Days shoes from the “Leather Collection” and the sales went through the roof. With an endorsement like that the future looks to be remaining bright for Early Days for many years to come!
