Our Story

Welcome to Robinson’s Shoes. If you’re reading this page to find out if we’re the shoe company for you, then take a step this way and find out if we’re your perfect fit…

We’ve been a family-run business since 1954, and have stayed local to our roots in Carrickfergus since the beginning. Now a third generation family business, we continue to grow from strength to strength and we now sell our quality handmade shoes to over 100 countries around the world. Our business is rooted in tradition, with good old fashioned customer service at the heart of it. Our motto is ‘Gloria Prisca Novatur’ – The Glory of Old Made New – and that’s just how we plan to keep on doing business.

Trusted for 60 years

We’ve been in business for over 60 years, and in that time we’ve helped customers from all over the world find the perfect fitting shoes. Our friendly service is what keeps our loyal customers coming time and time again, because they know we’ll look after them properly.



Our brand ambassadors are hugely important to us. Not only do they love the shoes we sell, they embody the entire Robinson’s Shoes brand with the same passion that we have for our footwear. Their honest and authentic appreciation for our handcrafted shoes shines through, and we couldn’t be prouder of them. Our brand ambassadors truly understand what makes our shoes so special, and share this with the world.

Robinson’s Collection

The Robinson’s Shoes Presidential Collection consists of traditional Irish brogues, designed by us and adored by customers around the world. Our brogues have even been featured on TV in the Smithwick’s ad, which celebrates all things superior from the last century. Ireland’s finest brogues come in the form of Andrew Jackson Burnished Whiskey calf leather, and the Chester A. Arthur in Burnished Whiskey calf leather derby shoes.
