It gives us the greatest of pleasure to thank all of our customers, for without your commitment and appreciation for our shoes & boots, Crockett & Jones would not be in the position we are in today. Thank you. In celebration, we have created something very special – a trio of shoes that make up the '140th Anniversary Collection'. Kind Regards, Jonathan.
140 years have passed since Charles Jones and Sir James Crockett joined forces to create what is now regarded as one of the finest shoemakers in the world - Crockett & Jones. The story of a shoemaker (Jones) and a businessman (Crockett) unfolded, resulting in an incredibly successful shoe manufacturing ‘firm’ that has remained in the careful hands of a Jones ever since.
Turn through 140 pages of production records and you will still find Crockett & Jones working to the hum of skilled craftsmen and women in the same factory the company built in 1890.
Towering above the surrounding terraces of – Perry Street, Magee Street and Turner Street, where Crockett & Jones stands proudly as an icon of British shoe manufacturing.
A TRIBUTE TO OUR NORTHAMPTON HOME
The style names of each Crockett & Jones Hand Grade shoe & boot is taken from the streets of our retail origins in and around our capital, London. For our 140th Collection, we honoured the three streets that surround our Northampton factory – Perry, Magee & Turner (street).
Specially developed for the collection, Last 140 features a hollowed out neck, narrow waist, soft outside wall and an elegantly English round toe profile. After months of model making, sampling and test fitting a form fit for the collection was born.
LASTED SHOE TREE
Complimented with a pair of lasted Shoe Trees that are handmade by the very same last maker of the 140.
