Footwear consultant

Jack Brown Footwear Consultant

Footwear technologist

My Background

Thirty- seven years of footwear experience employed by some of the UK's leading footwear brands and companies; K Shoes / Clarks, Peter Black, Intertek Testing Services, Scholl Footwear, Bureau Veritas Consumer Product Services and consulting for Littlewoods, Oasis, Moda in Pelle , Karen Millen, Pentland, the British Footwear Association and many more UK and Global companies...

An in-depth knowledge of shoemaking, shoe fitting, QA Systems and procedures, inspections, factory audits, testing, returns analysis, proactive quality assurance and reactive problem solving, legislative requirements ... and a whole lot more!


Many companies do not have the advantage of employing a full time, experienced and knowledgeable Footwear Technologist, Footwear Quality Manager, or product developer relying instead on untrained and unskilled staff to manage the day to day regulatory, quality, technical and sourcing issues of footwear.

Those companies who do employ experienced footwear personnel often need additional coverage and extra resources particularly at busy times in the development cycle. In both cases there is a solution.

With thirty- seven years of quality, technical and supply chain experience in the footwear industry I can help companies to either manage all of their technical and quality issues right through from design concept through to customer return or become an additional, flexible resource at those very busy times in the development cycle.

An extra pair of safe hands as and when needed.



Although based in the United Kingdom, my services are provided internationally, including Europe, USA, China, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Thailand and many more countries..

If you think I can help then please get in touch.
