Thomas Rogerson

Rogersons, situated in the scenic town of Rothbury and surrounded by the Simonside Hills, carries on a proud family tradition of handcrafted footwear since 1905, now offering customers an expansive showroom and a year-round array of excellent bargains.

Nestled in the picturesque rural town of Rothbury, embraced by the majestic Simonside Hills, Rogersons takes immense pride in its rich heritage.

Originally founded by Thomas Rogerson, a master craftsman renowned for his exquisite Shepherds boots, the Rothbury shop opened its doors in 1905. The legacy was carried forward by Thomas’ son Arthur until the early 90s, and now, Ian, the torchbearer of the family tradition, continues to uphold their name.

Inspired by a transformative trip to a bustling shopping precinct in ‘San Jose,’ America, Ian made the visionary decision in 1979 to expand and refurbish the Rothbury shop, giving birth to The Arcade. With an unwavering commitment to excellence, The Arcade underwent further expansion in 1985, now providing discerning customers with a sprawling walk-around showroom, where every style is tastefully displayed, inviting visitors to browse and select at their leisure.

At Thomas Rogersons, we are dedicated to curating a selection of brands that epitomize both superior quality and exceptional value for money.

As we regularly update our inventory, discontinuing styles and transitioning between seasons, our stock is consistently refreshed. This presents an exciting opportunity for savvy shoppers to uncover fantastic bargains throughout the year, ensuring that remarkable deals await them at every turn.
