Produced in June 2016. Last 377 is a Main Collection last, taking a hint of inspiration from the quirky 359. With the excellent fitting qualities of our more recent lasts, development of the 377 last is no different. Another extremely comfortable and distinctly unique last that has a shortened stick length, slimmer back-part and ‘tweaked’ toe shape (than 359). All resulting in an asymmetric, round toed and characterful last, with notions of classic English shoemaking offering a slightly broader appearance in the forepart. Fitting advice from retail… Last 377 fits true to size, along with, 341, 360 and 363 lasts.
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.
