In the mid 70’s Philip worked for the Morrow Taylor Group, manufacturing ladies fashion shoes out of a factory in Newmarket, Auckland at the rate of over 3000 pairs a day.
By the early 80’s, at the age of 29, Philip had taken control of his father’s company, Prydes Footwear. Over the next 10 years, Prydes Footwear grew to 3 stores and in 1993 Footloose was born.
