1. Ellis Brigham Mountain Sports know a thing or two about outdoor footwear. We've had 80 years to build, refine and develop our in-depth footwear knowledge.

    In 1933 Frederick Ellis Brigham set up shop in Manchester and quickly established a reputation for being an expert on footwear. He would repair and build shoes and was known as the leading Alpine Boot Maker in Manchester. In the 1940's Fred Brigham began creating his own unique and innovative nailing pattern for climbers.

    In this short film Ellis Brigham discusses the development of outdoor footwear in the 1930s and 40's. Duncan from the Manchester store brings us into the 21st Century by discussing a few of the latest technologies used by leading manufacturers to build footwear in 2013 - 80 years after Fred Brigham built a business as an Alpine Boot Maker.
