The shoe maker established in 1879 is Northampton's shoe industry legend and one of the British authorities in the field. It has successfully invented itself again. The traditional brand is now not only inherently familiar and fully operational as well as fashionable, since the family-owned quality leather house makes trendy boots and other up-to-date casual footwear in addition to the classic office shoes.
The quest for extreme quality remains unmoved at the heart of Crockett & Jones's operations.
"We make shoes like the Germans make cars. Hardly anyone buys a Mercedes because of it looks so trendy but because of its engineering skills and reliability. Similarly, if the customer wants flashy shoes, he buys Italians - just like a customer looking for a spectacular looking car ends up with an Italian car " said Jonathan Jones, CEO of the company.
