Goliath Footwear Ltd has been making boots since 1880, formerly part of the cooperative society, Goliath's factory in Heckmondwike used to make boots for 'navvies quarrymen and policemen'. It is even true that the Co-op factory sponsored Stanley Matthews in the 1950's and made his 'glove-like' football boots. As the world has progressed the Cooperative movement needed to change and focus away from non-core businesses. A Turkish footwear business YDS, took an interest in the company and now the Goliath brand with it's new owners, YDS, is modern, vibrant and selling both in the UK and Internationally with fresh outlook. All that history definitely counts for a great deal in the safety industry, and we manufacture to the highest standards built on years of experience.
Goliath Footwear Ltd manufactures quality safety footwear for industrial markets and distributes into construction, utilities and civil engineering, light and heavy industrial and special hazard workplaces. We partner world leading technologies such as GORE-TEX®, D30 and CORDURA® to develop the best performing protective footwear for specialist industrial work environments. Our West Yorkshire distribution centre holds 150,000 pairs and kept up to capacity with a factory which makes up to 10,000 boots and shoes a day.
