The Details - Flora
Flora, a women's 'Cricket' shoe made from Stone Nubuck on a single leather sole. The Cricket shoe has a sporting heritage that can be seen throughout our early catalogues (1910's right through to the 1930's). Unfortunately, there is no detailed descriptions to shed light on the striking Vamp strap design. We can only assume that this strip of leather was added for protective reasons. Never-the-less, a quirky detail that makes for an interesting addition to the Crockett & Jones Women's Collection for Spring/Summer 2017.
Developed and produced in the May of 2014, Last 617 is a Women’s Collection last featuring an elongated toe with soft-almond shape. This last gives Flora an elegant look, especially as 617 is now established as the most widely used last in the Women’s Collection. Fitting advice from retail is that last 617 fits true to size for width, but has a longer toe shape than the other Women's lasts, so the wearer will find more room at the front of the shoe.
