The Kurt Geiger Story
The original Kurt Geiger store first opened its doors in Britain’s fashion capital on Bond Street, London in 1963. Since then the brand has continued to evolve, making covetable footwear and accessories for fashion-forward and characterful women and men around the world.
A true fashion authority, Kurt Geiger – named after the brand’s Austrian founder - blends iconic London style with urban wearability to create daring and recognisable designs at the forefront of fashion. Kurt Geiger now has over 70 stores as well as over 170 concessions in department stores, including Harrods and Selfridges, and sells over four million pairs of shoes a year.
