Villiers 2, a mid-height derby boot with a straight punch cap design. Hand polished with exaggerated hand burnishing, Villiers II is said to be the boot equivalent of the famed Belgrave. Made on the excellent fitting Last 367, from the finest calf leather and bark tanned single leather soles. From the Hand Grade Collection.
Produced in 2016. Last 367 is a Hand Grade Collection last with a soft square toe. Originally developed for the Japanese market, 367 is an updated version of the much celebrated 337. Last No.337 was deemed a forward thinking last of its time, being one of the longer more extreme lasts on offer. Last 367 offers the same, soft square toe but also features a 'clipped' heel or back-part. Technically a superior last, it forms its origins in great company following the successes of its fore-part (from 337) and back-part (from 363).
