St. Crispin ... the first shoemaker


Shoemaking has a long history and one that is rich in tradition. Within the trade itself -- among shoe and bootmakers -- the legends, the traditions, and the history really begin with St. Crispin. St. Crispin is the patron saint of shoemakers. Since medieval times, October 25th has been celebrated as St. Crispin's Day and the Shoemaker's Holiday. In the past, boot and shoemakers traditionally closed their shops on this day, in celebration and commemoration. Actually there are two stories that seem to be the same... one in England, one in France. St. Crispin was born into a wealthy Roman family in the third century A.D.. Somewhere fairly early on, he converted to Christianity. Since this was not an approved lifestyle for a noble Roman, legend says that he was disinherited. Forced to fall back upon his own resources, St. Crispin (not yet a saint) became a shoemaker...
