All credit to Luigi. A low-key Florida cobbler in the 1950's, he handmade moccasin-inspired sandals one pair at a time for an upscale store in Palm Beach. They were a local hit. Then Saks Fifth Avenue asked Jack Rogers Shoe Company to manufacture the sandals en masse for their stores.
They were given the name "Navajo" sandals because of its round, Native American-inspired design stitched into the leather.
The Navajos sandals by Jack Rogers are made now in every color and in every material-crocodile, alligator, suede, and python. The whip-stitching makes for lots of color combos. The greatest fact about the construction of the sandal is that they are all made by hand. Jack Rogers Company makes it their priority to pay attention to the detail of every shoe they manufacture. Thong sandals were among the first forms of footwear.
1962, Jackie Kennedy was photographed in a pair of Jack Rogers Navajo sandals. Not only are they a big hit among celebrities such as Sharon Stone and Brooke Shields, they are a big hit at Footnotesonline.com!!
