Hey friends! I’ve been tracking my analytics and gosh do you guys love this blog post! This Jack Rogers post has been my most-read blog post the past 3 consecutive months!
If you’re reading this, I’m guessing you’re most likely a new face around here! Welcome! I’m Helen, a lifestyle blogger living in Greenwich, CT. Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet!! If you do decide to buy a pair of Jacks, it would mean the world to me if you’d use my link here.
This past year I got to partner with Jack Rogers (a HUGE accomplishment for me!). It’s important to note though, I wrote this blog post wayyy before every partnering with them and I’ve been wearing Jack Rogers for longer than I can remember!
I make a small commission off of purchases through my link above, which helps me continue to bring you guys great content here on Style Inherited. I really appreciate you guys!
Alrighty then, let’s start sifting through everything you need to know about Jack Rogers, and more!! You might want to take notes. Ha, I’m only kind of joking…
Here at Style Inherited we believe in honest opinions, quality over quantity, and that a great outfit and the right mindset can solve almost anything. Thanks for checking us out and hopefully you’ll stop by again soon!
To say I’m obsessed with Jack Rogers would be an understatement… I think at last count I owned 7 pairs of Jacks (oops!). Whether you’re contemplating buying your very first pair of Jack Rogers, or if you’re looking to branch out from their classic sandal, this post has all the answers to your questions! I hope you find this to be a helpful resource. If so, please pass this post along to your friends!
A: YES! Jack Rogers are 100% worth the investment because they’re built to last. On top of that, these sandals never go out of style! I bought my first pair of Jack Rogers over 7 years ago and I only just now had to retire them. If you don’t want to buy them full price (I don’t blame you), then sign up for the Jack Rogers newsletter to be notified of any sales. And if you live in the NYC area, they have a headquarters sale once a year, which is where you’ll get the most amazing pricing on their shoes.
A: Honestly, the classic Jack Rogers sandals do take some time to wear in. I don’t recommend wearing them for long periods of time until your feet get used to the leather soles, but you can also get heel pads like the ones below to help make them a little more comfy. One tip to speed up wearing in your Jacks is to wear them in the shower and get the completely wet. Apparently it works pretty well! If you don’t want to wear them in the shower, then just be patient and wear them around the house to wear them in!
* I’ve never used heel pads, but I know lots of people who have and swear by them!
I do want to add, Jack Rogers has recently released several new styles that have a more comfortable & cushion-y heel bed, so if you’re on the fence, these are for you!! Shop these comfortable Jacks below!
A: Jacks run true to size length wise, as for width some people say they run a little narrow. As someone with super narrow feet, I can’t speak all that accurately to the width of them. My regular width Jacks give me some wiggle room, but my narrow Jacks fit perfectly. Maybe if you have wider feet you’ll want to order the wide version, but for the most part I think people are fine with ordering their usual size (I wear my normal size- a size 7).
A: I buy my Jack Rogers sandals directly from their website! You can also get them on Nordstrom, Zappos, and lots of other places, but I usually find that Jack Rogers’ website has the best prices (because they almost always have a sale going on). I’ve also bought some of my shoes from the JR headquarters sale where they mark their shoes down to ridiculously low prices! (I snagged a pair of sneakers for $20 and a pair of booties for under $60 at the headquarters sale!)
A: I had a pair of fake Jacks back in college. Truthfully, they are really comfy because their soles are soft and cushy and are not made of real leather that Jack Rogers are made of. You can buy them online from Shoe Carnival here. Honestly, it is pretty difficult to tell the difference between fake Jacks and real Jacks! Ha, not sure if I should be proud of that or not… I will say that my real Jack Rogers Sandals have lasted over 7 years. Fake ones will last you maybeee one summer, so if you actually do the math the real Jacks are cheaper in the long run!
A: I don’t think so? Over time you’re going to get the dark marks from your toes, and even if you clean them off each time you wear them it’s still going to probably happen. It’s okay though! It happens to everyone no matter how well you take care of your Jacks. If you do get a lot of dirt on them though, I just use dish soap and a little bit of water and wipe them down.
Hope this helps for now! Let me know if you have any other questions or think I missed anything major!
With Love From Greenwich,
