Established in 1925.

Cripps Footwear was established in 1925 by Joseph Cripps in St. Augustine Street in the heart of Dublin's city centre.  The second generation opened stores in Fairview, Thomas Street and here in Terenure, Austin Cripps Snr. opened this store in 1962.

The business is now in its third generation under the helm of Olga Cripps, and will celebrated 50 years in Terenure in 2012.  Its success is based on the original ethos of providing customers with quality footwear and service which is as true today as it was back in 1925.

Customers recognise the importance of correct shoe fitting, and at Cripps Footwear they have the reassurance that all staff are trained to advise them correctly.  Such is the reputation of the store, that referrals are often received, far and wide, from hospitals, doctors and other shoe stores.

At Cripps Footwear there is no compromise in fit before fashion.  There is a vast range of brand, styles and colours to choose from, and no one leaves disappointed.
