Sanders & Sanders Ltd. (or Sander Bros., as it was first named) was established in 1873 by brothers William and Thomas Sanders of Northamptonshire in England. William Sanders was apprenticed to the shoe and boot trade as a young man working in London as a clicker(a worker who cuts the leather for the shoe) before returning to Northamptonshire in 1871 with the vision of setting up his own shoemaking business with his brother, Thomas.
The company remains a family business, owned and operated by the fourth and fifth generations of the Sanders family. The company now produces over 2000 pairs of the finest quality shoes and boots every week. Today, Sanders & Sanders remains in the same factory on Spencer Road as it has done for the past century, is known throughout the world as the very best in English elegance, and exports to over seventy countries across six continents with Junior's being one of the few shops in the USA to offer Sanders.
The chukka boot from Sanders is iconic in the world of shoes. Most often it is seen in photographs of Steve McQueen sporting the chukka on many occasions including in the movie Bullitt. Beyond the movie, the Sanders chukka has been able to survive generations due to its easy-to-wear nature and classic style. Pairing simply with most everything from denim and sport coats for a business casual look to canvas trousers and knitwear for the weekend, the Sanders chukka will be a Junior's perennial favorite for years to come.
