Our Story

The house of JONAK

Jonak is the story of a French brand created by the Nakam family during the 1960s. While Marcel Nakam opened the first Jonak boutique in the Parisian quarter of « Saint-Germain-des-Prés » in 1964, it was his son, Joseph Nakam, who largely developed the brand from 1978 onwards. Joseph in turn passed his passion for shoes on to his children, who have been managing the company since 2012.
At Jonak, everything is authentic and handcrafted: from the selection of the leathers used to the carefully supervised production processes and the meticulous, original finishing touches, nothing is left to chance. Our designers dream up the shoes that will satisfy your appetite for fashion: basic styles that aren’t so basic after all, timeless classics with trendy details – in short, casual fashion that is accessible to all!
