From the brand's beginnings in Italy to its most recent induction
Go anywhere in the summer and you’re likely to see at least three pairs of Jack Rogers strutting around. But how did they get so popular (and completely beloved)? This is where it all began.
1. In the early 60s, the label was born on the streets of Capri.
2. After Jackie O fell in love with them while vacationing in Italy, the Navajo sandal gained instant fame.
3. That same sandal is still made by hand in Palm Beach, Florida.

Our Jack Rogers Boutique opens Sunday, May 19, at 11AM ET.
