Last No. 200
Produced in January 1934. Last 200 is a Main Collection D fitting last, with a bulbous round toe and narrow waist. After over 80 years of use already under its belt, last 200 epitomises the heritage Crockett & Jones lasts. Due to the early inception of this last, it features a typically narrow waist, making it perfect for the unlined Chukka, a boot famed throughout Europe as an iconic Crockett & Jones style. Fitting advice from retail… Last 200 fits ½ size smaller than many lasts in our collection, due primarily to the narrower ‘D’ fitting. Aesthetically its toe box is similar to the 314, 325, and 335 lasts.
Chukka / Derby Boot
It is believed that a Chukka boot has both a sporting and a military heritage. A Chukka boot (or Desert boot) is constructed using three pieces of outer material – Inside Quarter, Outside Quarter and Vamp with low cut leg (but above the ankle) and two to three eyelets. In contrast, a Derby boot is a fully lined, high leg and all together, more substantial boot with variations similar to a Derby shoe. Chukka boots are usually considered unlined, although lined versions are available and they are often regarded as the most comfortable of all styles.
