Jones Bootmaker

Jones Bootmaker


Jones Bootmaker was founded in 1857 in London, by Alfred and Emma Jones. The company expanded on the back of the Jones’ large family, 11 sons and 3 daughters, with 9 sons opening additional stores across England. In 1955, the company joined the Church & Co. group, which allowed it to continue its growth trajectory, with a further sale of the company in 2001 to a private investor.

In 2018, Jones Bootmaker was acquired out of administration by the Yorkshire based shoe retailer, Pavers. Based in York, it was founded in 1971 Catherine Paver and is, now, run by her son Stuart.
