Last No. 236

Produced in January 1961. Last 236 is a Main Collection last with a blunt round toe, the most traditional Crockett & Jones toe shape used for formal business Oxfords. Connaught is now the only remaining style on last 236, with an air of the English shoe trade from years gone by. There are no plans to discontinue this traditional toe shape with its slightly shorter forepart.

What does it mean?


The most easily recognisable of all classic styles, is the elegant English Oxford. A formal style that dates back over two hundred years, it is thought to have been named by the students at Oxford University, although it is almost certain that the style predates this ‘naming’ further still. The sequence of operations for constructing an Oxford differs to a Derby. The Inside and outside Quarters are stitched underneath the Vamp and the tongue is stitched in separately underneath the Quarters/Vamp/Facing. Often referred to as ‘Closed Lacing’.

Single Leather Sole

High quality leather sole with open stitching, stained and waxed to provide protection from the elements. Wheeled, crowed and top ironed for aesthetic pleasure.


All Goodyear-welted shoes & boots are 100% made in Northampton, England. Slippers & Driving shoes are outsourced to specialist manufacturers.
