Fun Fact: Did you know that Johnston & Murphy got its start in Newark, NJ back in 1850? William Dudley, a master craftsman who had been schooled in the classic tradition of English shoe making, established the William J. Dudley Shoe Company. During its first 25 years, the company's growth forced five moves to increasingly larger locations. In 1880, Newark businessman James Johnston joined the company as Dudley's partner and assumed control of the company upon Dudley’s death in 1881. William A. Murphy, another prominent Newark businessman was intrigued by the success of Johnston's local shoe company and in 1884 joined forces with Johnston creating the celebrated brand Johnston & Murphy. Newark remained the home of Johnston & Murphy until 1951 when Genesco purchased the company and moved it to Nashville.
