The Beginning…
Established in 1932 as a shoe components wholesaler, the firm was created by Alex and Sarah Jacobs with the primary objective of serving the material and component needs of local cobblers. The original staff of the company consisted of the Jacobs and a warehouseman. As the company grew through the 1940's and 1950's, the geographic area increased and the product offering was broadened to service shoe and department stores.

Growth…
In the 1960's, the second generation of Jacobs took the helm and the operation was broadened to include rubber footwear and weather related overshoes. As the 1970's arrived, the firm began importing and distributing athletic footwear and children's footwear to department stores, chains and independent retailers in addition to its burgeoning accessories business..
