Grizedale in dark brown rough-out suede features our cleated rubber sole, antique brass eyelets and a heavier than usual lace, there is also a hidden secret beneath... A half bellows tongue, made from contrasting grain calf, ensures no water penetrates the lace area, whilst stomping through wet grass or shallow streams (as demonstrated in our seasonal film). Half leather lining with a waterproof membrane interlining, rounds off our toughest ever, breathable yet sturdy, Rough-Out Suede boot.
Rough-out suede is a material that ‘roughs-up’ during wear. Over time, it takes on a rugged, worn aesthetic which makes it our most casual material in the collection. If left uncared for, you will find it lightens and continues to become rougher in look and feel. However, rough-out suede very much benefits from an annual covering in dubbin to uphold its water resistance. An application of dubbin will also darken down the leather, and reduce its rough appearance bringing back some ‘newness’.
When ordered online, all rough-out suede shoes/boots are pre-treated before they are shipped. If in store, you can also speak to our staff about caring for rough-out suede.

LAST NO. 228
Produced in January 1954. Last 228 is a Main Collection last, with a medium round toe and generous toe depth. Dating back to the mid 50s, the last was developed to be used for country walking shoes and boots. In 2015, last 228 cemented itself into Crockett & Jones’s legacy, when Radnor in Black Calf appeared in James Bond’s SPECTRE. The rugged Commando sole that often accompanies models made on this last is quite firm during the initial wear. With the outdoor nature of this boot, when fitting, bear in mind that you may want to wear heavier weight socks.

The most popular of all the boot styles, a Derby boot is a fully lined, high leg and all together, more substantial boot than most. More often than not, featuring a Dainite or chunky rubber sole with variations similar to a Derby shoe. With historical references to Commando and Officers boots, the plain-front and Cap Derby boots are by far the most recognisable styles. Suitable for the colder Winter months.
