Spanish Mary Jane Shoes for Children

Girls & Boys Leather Spanish Shoes

Where did the name Mary Jane come from? 

Mary Jane was a character created by Richard Felton Outcault for his comic strip Buster Brown, which was first published in 1902. She was the sister of the title character Buster Brown and was also Outcault's daughter of the same name.

In 1904, Outcault traveled to the St. Louis World's Fair and sold licenses to up to 200 companies to use the Buster Brown characters to advertise their products. Among them was the Brown Shoe Company, which later hired actors to tour the country, performing as the Buster Brown characters. This strategy helped the Brown Shoe Company become the most prominently associated brand with the Buster Brown characters. The style of shoe both Buster Brown and Mary Jane came to be known by her name, Mary Jane.
