About Us

Hi, my name is Eugene Gordon. I have been involved in the footwear industry for over 30 years. My father Bob Gordon founded Gordon's, initially making footwear in  West Auckland, New Zealand in 1975. Originally we made Bespoke Footwear for our Boutique in Fort Street, Auckland Central and eventually progressed to manufacturing  'made to measure' dance footwear, for men, women and children.

In 1980 we began to manufacture Orthopaedic Footwear initially making infant/children's surgical boots for Auckland Hospital.
Eventually, we moved into the making of orthopaedic footwear for all ages and genders suppling Hospitals/Orthopaedic Departments throughout New Zealand and parts of Australia. For over 40 years we have designed and made numerous different styles of Orthopaedic and Bespoke footwear.

In 2006  Bob Gordon retired from the Footwear trade and I took over, trading as Gordons Footwear Ltd.

Back in 1984, I became an Apprentice Shoemaker for 'The New Zealand Shoe Corporation' ( Selby Shoe Co Ltd ).  In 1990 I moved to Gordon's and predominantly made Bespoke and Orthopaedic footwear.

In 2009 I became a member of the Pedorthic Association Australia.

In 2012 I began studies/training  as a Pedorthist and have been working in both Australia and New Zealand since.

Since joining Pedorthic Association Australia  I have developed a special interest in true orthopaedic footwear manufacture, providing footwear solutions for high risk /high need clients. The footwear solutions we provide are modelled around techniques practised in Australia, Europe, Canada and the USA. The solutions that we offer are based on proven protocols for your foot/lower limb condition, which I am confident will provide you the best footwear solutions available here in New Zealand.

As well I am involved in ongoing professional development provided in Australia.

So if you or someone you know are in need of footwear solutions for your foot/lower limb condition you need look no further.
