Shoe Care

Crockett & Jones only uses the finest leathers available. With the correct care and attention your shoes will age well, taking on a greater depth of colour and character that only time can produce. We recommend following our shoe care guidelines regularly. Leather uppers require regular treatment with a good-quality wax polish to protect the leather and give a high shine finish. This should help to prolong the life of the uppers and maintain their appearance. For full details of how to care for your Crockett & Jones shoes, including a video guide, please refer to our Shoe Care section.

Last No. 228


Produced in January 1954. Last 228 is a Main Line last, with a medium round toe and generous toe depth. Dating back to the mid-50s, the last was developed to be used for country walking shoes and boots. In 2015, last 228 cemented itself into Crockett & Jones’ legacy, when Radnor in Black Calf appeared in James Bond’s SPECTRE. Fitting advice from retail… Last 228 fits true to size. The rugged Commando sole that often accompanies models made on this last is quite firm during the initial wear. Aesthetically its toe box is similar to the 314, 325, and 335 lasts. With the outdoor nature of this boot, keep in mind that you may want to wear heavier weight socks.

Veldtschoen Construction

Veldtschoen


The Veldtschoen construction method is our most water-resistant method of producing welted shoes & boots. By turning the waxed upper leather outwards and over the welt that is stitched to the leather lining, we conceal the feather line, allowing for excess water to run away without penetrating the boots.

Commando Rubber Sole

Heavy weight, high quality rubber sole. Traditionally used on high leg Derby boots.

Craftsmanship

All Goodyear-welted shoes & boots are 100% made in Northampton, England. Slippers & Driving shoes are outsourced to specialist manufacturers.
