Cornell, a five-eyelet derby shoe also known as a plain front blucher is made from the finest earth green suede. Featuring a contrasting red rubber unit sole, and notched storm welt. This stand-alone ‘Ivy League’ style adds some American inspiration to this year’s Spring / Summer collection.
This colourway of repello suede is tanned to be water repellent. Fully treated with ‘Scotch guard’ during the tanning process, the material achieves an exceptionally high level of water resistance to water and oil based substances. This proofing remains effective throughout the life of the footwear although we do recommend you continue with general suede shoe care.

LAST NO. 378
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.
Know your styles
Derby shoes are possibly the most versatile of all shoe styles, bridging the gap between smart and smart casual wear with ease. A Brogue Derby is easily the most recognisable variation, made popular with the introduction of the full country Brogue which was developed for practical uses in the fields. The sequence of operations for constructing a Derby, differs to an Oxford. Inside and outside Quarters are stitched to a tab point either side of the vamp and the tongue is cut as part of the vamp and is not a separate component. Often referred to as ‘Open Lacing’.
The English Ivy League
For Spring Summer 22, Crockett & Jones has relaunched its own sporty, plain front, 5-eyelet Derby… An Ivy League Blucher! These are typically broad in toe, featuring top eyelets (five of them to be precise).
As a nod to the long and enjoyable relationship we had with Ralph Lauren and Ivy League style, we of course have clad the new CORNELL in the English made Red Rubber Unit.
