Jenny Shoes

Jenny Shoes

Jenny is a sub-brand of Ara Shoes which is one of Germany's largest and highest quality shoe manufacturers.  Believe it or not, Ara are much bigger than their rivals Gabor Shoes worldwide but as brands in the UK, Gabor is much bigger than Ara.  The brand Jenny came about as the owner of Ara Shoes decided to create a brand name in memory of his wife - named "Jenny".  In the opinion of Garek Begg, Ara Shoes are slightly higher quality than Gabor and therefore are a premium brand with some beautiful ladies shoes, sandals and boots. 

What's the difference between Jenny and Ara?

The main difference is the materials used and therefore the price of the shoes.  Typically Jenny will use man-made materials (like Rieker, Tamaris, Marco Tozzi and many other famous brands) instead of leather.  The cost of man-made materials is much lower than leather and as a result the shoes cost less.  This means Jenny shoes and boots are cheaper than Ara Shoes and boots.  The quality in the making is just as good however so they are a great option for you if you would like to buy a great value pair of shoes and do not wish to wear leather shoes.
