Hardwick, an apron fronted, split toe derby shoe made from the finest suede and pebble grain leather with our 'City' rubber sole. From the Men's Main Collection.
Produced in December 2003. Last 341 is a versatile Main Collection last, with a medium round toe. Regarded as a traditional main collection last, 341 has proven to be an excellent last for both formal business and smart casual wear. Long, but not too long, round but not too round. Established as one of the most widely used lasts in the collection, many would suggest that 341 hosts the perfect balance when buying Crockett & Jones shoes for their English heritage.
Did you know?
Hardwick originates from an early 1990s pattern on the 317 last, Hatfield. Beginning its life as a laid-on apron Derby, of French inspiration. Known as a five-eyelet, apron split-toe Derby (with collar!) the early patterns had short aprons with slightly longer toe-seams for a European, sportier look. As new lasts were developed, a dress version was introduced - Shelton on the 325 last and then in 2007, Hardwick on the 341 last. The current Hardwick is the first version with a 'butted' seam apron.
