* The Hotter Comfort Concept brand was founded in the early 1990s by Stewart Houlgrave whose parents set up Beaconsfield Footwear as a slipper manufacturer in 1959. With a mission to make shoes as comfortable as slippers Stewart created a collection of stylish shoes with hidden comfort features including super soft leathers, lightweight and flexible soles, cushioning underfoot, breathable leathers, suedes and nubucks and wiggle room for toes.
* The company sells Hotter shoes direct to customers via its onsite customer service centre and www.hotter.com. Since 2009, its 50th year, the company has revamped its website, aired 6 TV campaigns and launched in the US. With its exceptional product quality and outstanding customer service, Hotter embarked on an ambitious store opening programme in 2010 – with a total of 53 stores open across the UK by the end of July 2013. Staying true to its British heritage, Hotter now manufactures 1.6 million pairs of shoes in its Lancashire factory – making it the UK’s biggest shoe maker.
