Last No. 335
Produced in June 2000. Last 335 is a Main Collection last, with a broad round toe and increased toe depth. Cut from the same cloth as 325, 335 is potentially one of the most over shadowed lasts in the collection. 335 produces a heavy, but stylish shoe & boot. It offers plenty of room in the forepart and gives an air of fashionable wear with its Chelsea and Brogue boot offerings.
Chukka / Derby Boot
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.
