Established in 1991, Nicholas Deakins was initially a small collection of four samples created by Craig Nicholas Tate, who was at the time studying for a degree in Fashion and Textiles. His samples caught the eye of English manufacturer W. J. Brookes and thus the brand of Nicholas Deakins Footwear was born. This brand is the right balance of both style and wearable. Instant success propelled this label into the spotlight and has been popular ever since. Nicholas Deakins has built its reputation on innovative ideas, original designs and exceedingly high quality. Shoes may be the product the brand is best known for, but the diverse brand applies the same care and attention into its range of t-shirts and jackets.
