American in spirit, Jack Rogers was born out of resort style but has evolved into a lifestyle collection of year-round pieces. From the Classic Sandal's iconic whipstitching and rondelle motif exude a confident, born-with-it sense of style. They're the pieces that take you from an afternoon bike ride to evening cocktails and the ones you never forget to pack, wherever you're headed. A pop of color, an unexpected detail, a feeling of coming home...no matter where you are, that's Jack Rogers.
Jack Rogers shoes had an inspired beginning on the isle of Capri in the early 60s. It was the heyday of the international jet set, a swirl of famous faces and names, lounging poolside in colorful caftans, wearing sherbet shades against the Mediterranean backdrop. Chic as it was, one person stood out as the most vibrant of all: Jackie Kennedy. The First Lady, known for her impeccable style, never looked better than when she was off-duty with her innate charisma, she had a way of making simple pieces look absolutely sublime.
It was on one of these Italian holidays that Jackie first met the shoe style that would become the Classic Jack Rogers Sandal, a flat sandal characterized by whipstitched leather and an iconic rondelle. On her return to Palm Beach, Jackie brought the shoe to a local cobbler and an icon was born. Easy and elegant, it quickly became a warm weather essential for women of all ages, not to mention their sisters, best friends and daughters.
Whether you've been wearing our Classic Sandals for years or you're starting a new collection, Jack Rogers is a celebration of shared moments and histories. Our designs are inspired by the easy effortlessness of a day spent among sisters and best friends. Slip them on with your favorite jeans and feel perfectly polished (whether or not your toes are). Like your mom before you, or your daughter someday, you can't help but make them your own.
