Harry’s Of London Joins The British Invasion

Harlem inspired British style early in Harlem’s history with Lord Viscount Courtenay, Francis James Jackson, and others who stayed at the Claremont Inn on 123rd Street and Riverside in Harlem at the turn of the last century.

Now, the Brits have crossed the pond to open contemporary British footwear brand Harrys of London’s New York City flagship store.

The revolutionary men’s shoe is engineered for comfort with patented technology, Technogel, designed by a podiatrist (foot doctor) exclusively for Harrys of London. The Technogel 3D sole coupled with its classic design make Harry’s of London the 21st Century man’s wardrobe footwear essential.

They have been seen on the feet of Oscar and Grammy award-winning rapper and Harlem fave Common who recently appeared on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon in a fresh pair.
