Last No. 617


Produced in May 2014. Last 617 is a Women’s Collection last featuring an elongated toe with soft-almond shape. This last gives its styles an elegant look, especially if they are unlined like Cora and Angel, but the addition of a sturdy rubber sole can transform the aesthetic into something gutsier like Anna or Holly. 617 is now established as the most widely used last in the new Women’s Collection since 2012.

What does it mean?

Oxford


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’.

Womens 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.
