Last No. 314
Produced in October 1993. Last 314 is a Main Collection loafer last, with a ‘high walled’ round toe. A straight last with generous fitting qualities, this loafer last has been in production for many years. Boston, the famed style on 314, is a staple for many a customer. Offering E & G width fittings and a high instep, 314 is often commented on as “comfortable from the word go”. Fitting advice from retail… Last 314 presents one of our shorter toe shapes, and while fitting true to size, the wearers’ toes will sit relatively close to the front of the shoe. The toe shape is aesthetically similar to lasts 236, 376, 335, and 363.
With American roots and connections to the original moccasin, Loafers have grown from strength to strength over recent years. Another ‘no lacing’ option, Loafers are the most casual style available from a Goodyear-welted shoemaker such as Crockett & Jones. They are commonly produced in both ‘Lined’ and ‘Unlined’ forms. Constructed as either one whole piece of leather or two sections including galosh and apron.
