Founded in 1879 in Northampton, at the heart of England’s most famous shoemaking town, Crockett & Jones specialise in the manufacture of high quality Goodyear-welted footwear.
Although the production process has evolved since the early days of shoe-making, with the introduction of more reliable machinery and ‘health & safety’, much of the factory looks as it did when it was first built. The manufacture of high quality Goodyear welted shoes remains very labour-intensive, requiring a highly skilled workforce to carry out more than 200 separate operations during an 8 week period. Goodyear-Welted construction gives the shoes an exceptional degree of strength, durability and comfort in wear. This method originated by hand-makers centuries ago.
As a 5th generation family managed business, Crockett & Jones is committed to maintaining the highest standards of traditional craftsmanship, quality and service which have been appreciated by their customers for more than 135 years.
With the introduction of Canary Wharf, there are now 12 Crockett & Jones retail shops and concessions across; London, Birmingham, Paris, Brussels and New York, all of whom run a Mail Order Service for new and existing customers.
In Canary Wharf, you will find 3 ranges for men, produced by Crockett & Jones: Hand Grade, Main Line and Shell Cordovan collections. For women, we also have a new collection of low-heeled shoes and boots.
