With no slowing down of the rising trend of men’s formal shoes with rubber soles, we have continued to develop our ‘City Sole’ collection further. Replacing our 'single' Dainite, AW17 brings eight new styles, two classic Oxford’s, Hallam in Black Calf and Westbourne in Dark Brown Calf Suede. Our penny Loafer Sydney, in Dark Brown Suede, Black Calf and Dark Brown Burnished Calf. Along with Black Calf and Dark Brown Suede in our Chelsea 8 range and Deene in Dark Brown Pebble Grain.
The sole, which is more traditionally known to be of the ‘Dainite’ variety, has the familiar studded design with a high rubber compound awarding it a Northampton shoe manufacturer’s rubber sole of choice.
With strong family connections between the owners of the two companies, Crockett & Jones and The Harboro Rubber Co. have designed and developed the a sole, unique to Crockett & Jones, aptly named the ‘City Sole’. Offering the formality of a leather sole with sharp edge trimming, a reduced waist and the comfort, practicality and longevity of a rubber sole.
