Crockett & Jones was founded in 1879 in Northampton, where they specialise in the manufacture of high quality Goodyear-welted footwear. For men there are 3 ranges produced by Crockett & Jones (Hand Grade Collection, Main Collection and Shell Cordovan Collection) and for women there is a small range of low-heeled shoes and boots.
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 130 years.
Northampton shoe maker, Crockett & Jones have supplied 4 styles to live up to James Bond’s expectations. These include; Alex in Black Calf, Highbury in Black Calf, Tetbury in Black Nubuck and Islay in Dark Brown Scotch Grain.
For those unable to visit the Crockett & Jones shops, they offer a comprehensive mail order service for purchasing Crockett & Jones shoes, belts and accessories. Through this service you may also return shoes to Crockett & Jones for a full repair at the factory.
