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.
