Over 70 years ago a co-operative was formed to provide work in a small town called Ballinasloe, in the heart of Galway on Ireland's glorious West Coast. Taking its name from a famous French courtesan, Madame du Barry, the company's formative years were deﬁned through the making of ﬁne quality shoes during which time they were fortunate to be able to draw on a local population of hard-working craftsmen and women.
Dubarry's reputation as one of Ireland's most respected and successful companies was born out of the workforce's deep-rooted pride and ambition to produce footwear of the very highest quality.
Some words from Fullerton Shoes:
We are shoemakers, and ran production units when most shoes were still made in the UK. We supplied large store groups, launched shoe ranges for brands as diverse as Wrangler and Jasper Conran, and founded Chatham, the marine lifestyle brand. We launched three shoe brands of our own, and introduced innovations like the first washable deck shoes. So we know shoes, and we've put all we know into our new range of fabulous moccasins, made up to a standard, not down to a price.
Some words from Sebago:
"Along with our authentic classics, we're also introducing new, innovative footwear to consumers in the 85+ countries where Sebago is sold. Plus, through global collaborations, we're also developing exclusive footwear, such as the multi-colored Docksides® we produced with French retailer, Colette, and the colorful, limited edition boat shoes we created with VANE New York City. Showing that while Sebago is always mindful of our legacy, as a company we will forever keep moving forward."
