I am starting this thread in the hope of learning as much as I can about Toppers Shoes of London. It's my understanding that Steven (Stephen ?) Topper had his first shop on Shaftsbury Avenue, then later shops on Carnaby Street and the Kings Road. I was a customer at one of the shops on Carnaby Street, but can't remember visiting a Toppers anywhere else. Any information would be very much appreciated.

As you can see from the attached card Carnaby Street came later.  I used to buy my shoes at t


he Qeensway branch in 1964.

Wow - what a cool card ?

Any idea when the Queensway shop closed ?

I knew there was a shop in the Kings Road, but not Queeensway or Coventry Street

Was it on the same side as Whiteleys or further up ?

I never really started going Up West from East London until the early 1970's

Never got to know Queensway until much later about 1976.


Any idea what happened Stephen Topper, I had a pal ask Lloyd Johnson but he didn't know ?

So I'm wondering if  the Carnaby Street  shop  replaced either Coventry Street or Queensway ? Eventually there would be two Carnaby Street shops, there's a photo of Highway 61- Blonsde on Blonde era Bob Dylan in one of them !

It was on the opposite side to Whiteleys and nearer the Bayswater road end.  I do not know when it closed or what happened to Steve Topper, who I remember reading was the son who came up with all the new designs.  I have looked on the internet from time to time and come up with nothing.
