Last 378 is a Main Collection last that offers a heavy round toe and increased toe depth. This last offers plenty of room in the fore-part fitting – perfect for those with a wider foot. 378 also boast the new sculpted heel cup for a more secure fit in the back-part. 378 produces heavy, but stylish shoes & boots. It is a last that is often referred to as our most fashionable and contemporary last due to the movement towards oversized footwear offered by high fashion brands worldwide.
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.
