Jason Mark Harris

1990
In 1990 England's former Burnley Football Club striker (forward) Jason Mark Harris founded ANALPA UK and began developing and producing sport and casual shoes in Great Britain.
1991
A year later Jason and his team started with elegant dress pumps, the complete opposite to sneakers. Jason wanted to call them "The Queen and I", but later decided "J&Elisabeth" was more fitting. This paved the way for the creation of a new youth line of shoes "BETSY".
1992
Jason started to get a lot of requests for J & Elisabeth shoes from buyers in Central and Eastern Europe, as well as from formal USSR countries. Jason made the decision to expand into Europe. He opened showrooms in Zlin, the Czech Republic and Moscow. 1992 is considered THE YEAR when ANALPA was founded as an international company.

To provide our European customers with the best service we opened a 10,000m2 logistics centre and showroom in the German fashion capital, Dusseldorf.
1997
5 years after their expansion into Europe, the team at ANALPA understands they need more than just unique designs; the development of new and innovative materials. Soon after in the Dutch town of Waalwjk, Analpa opened its first laboratory to develop and test new materials. Several years later the laboratory developed 'MlcroPolyTex', a unique material made from breathable fibres.
Shoes made of MicroPolyTex can be cleaned in a washing machine.
