Marshalls in footwear stems back over 100 years when brothers Arthur and Herbert split there interests between clothing and footwear. Both working for ‘Boss Mags’, Herbert chose to work in the clothing shop at one end of the Shambles in Worcester and Arthur choosing to work in the shoe shop at the other end. From there the following generations began opening shops through Herefordshire and Worcestershire. In 2000 Andrew Marshall started Crosby Shoe Agencies representing Wolky, Country Jacks, and DRS.
The agency went dormant for a while following the success of Strolling 4 Shoes in Cumbria but after a conversation over a pint in 2010 the decision to reinstate Crosby Shoe Agencies was reached this time Gus Marshall the 4th generation of Marshall taking the reigns.
Now three years on Crosby Shoe Agencies is proud to be representing Earth Spirit, Mjus and Healthy Back Bag. CSA took the agency 2 years ago and it has gone from strength to strength now selling to the major shoe retailers in Northern England & Scotland. Earth Spirit offers both retailer and consumer a top quality product at very competitive prices.
CSA have worked with Healthy Back Bag for 3 years. Every season new fabrics, colours and designs are being integrated into the pear drop shaped bag. This product is a must for all retailers as is an excellent accessory in any shoe shop.
In November of 2012 CSA took on the UK and Ireland agency for up and coming Italian brand Mjus. Because of its success CSA are delighted to have appointed Jeff Clark of HB and Rohde Jeff will carrying the brand in his usual stomping ground of the Southern half of England. Mjus manages to integrate comfort, fashion and price all into one shoe. The incredible palette of colour compliments the soft leathers perfectly, whilst the innovative designs make Mjus a brand that offers something women and men of all ages. We will be launching the SS14 collection at Moda on stand No. U14
Crosby Shoe Agencies are delighted to announce that they have secured UK agency for AirStep. AirStep is an award winning brand, sister company of Mjus, that will be added to the CSA stable for SS14. AirStep is more like a collection of art as opposed to a collection of shoes. AirStep was voted the best shoe producer 2012 and received the "step und schuhkurier Award" during the GDS on Sept 5th, 2012. This was a great achievement but undoubtedly deserved.
For retailers to view the whole collections from CSA we are opening a showroom in Manchester. This will allow retailers to build the right collection for their store in the comfort of a purpose designed footwear showroom.
