Crockett & Jones
Founded in 1879 by brothers-in-law James Crockett and Charles Jones, Crockett & Jones remains one of the oldest family-owned footwear manufacturers in the world with a central focus on quality and durability, exemplifying how Goodyear welting truly stands the test of time. Still producing completely in-house using century-old techniques and residing in the same Northampton factory since 1910, Crockett & Jones is renowned for their quality imperative and refined production of iconic, timeless styles. C&J expanded during the industrial era and became a significant supplier to England’s Royal Army in two world-wars, including production of 600,000 pair of boots in WWI alone. Since the great outsourcing of the 1970’s and 80’s, the company has transformed to become one of England’s finest Goodyear welting footwear manufacturers. C&J is a revered maker with a time-tested legacy, focusing on precise Last development, inspired pattern making, and meticulous material sourcing reinforced with a strict adherence to premium standards from cutting to finishing. Putting on a pair of Crockett & Jones is stepping into a 100-year history of dedicated, family-owned shoemaking with an emphasis on quality, elegance, and style. No wonder it’s the footwear of choice for James Bond.
