Produced in June 2016. Last 618, from the Women’s Collection, is an evolution from its predecessor 615 where the outside line has been straightened making it less asymmetric and more classic in look. This last has a medium round toe shape suitable for a variety of shoe and boot styles. Initially launched for Autumn/Winter 2016 with Hattie in Tan Scotch Grain, further styles will follow later. Fitting advice from retail… Last 618 fits true to size but with a shorter, softer toe shape than 617 and 613 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.
