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?

Monk Strap


Said to have been developed by an alpine monk in the 15th century, and worn throughout European monasteries, this style was popularised in the 1920s. Unbeknown to many, a Monk strap style hosts similar fitting qualities and construction to a Derby. You could think of a Monk style as a ‘modern day’ Derby, of sorts. With open quarters, and a whole cut vamp and tongue, Monk straps (single and double buckle) are remarkably comfortable on the foot. However, they will not offer the same level of adjustment, due to the absence of laces. The sequence of operations for constructing a Monk is similar to a Derby. 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.

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.
