The Leisures Shoe Boutique Story
Leisures Shoe Boutique was established in 1999 by CEO, Michael Newton-Brown. Michael is a third generation footwear retailer. His Grandmother Eunice Jackson started her retail stores in Sydney in 1943. In 2015 the Eunice Jackson stores were incorporated into the Leisures business. From our range of footwear, to our customer service it’s clear Leisures was built on three generations of shoe lovers and makers.
