Balfour, our hand stitched split-toe derby, is now made from the finest willow grain and bark tanned double leather soles. From the Hand Grade collection.
Produced in May 2009. Last 363 is a Hand Grade Collection last with a soft round toe, and asymmetric fitting qualities. This last is widely regarded as one of Crockett & Jones’s best fitting lasts. This is due to the slimmer back part reducing heel slippage, and a slightly narrower waist offering good arch support. Crockett & Jones’s take on a modern, but contemporary round toe, 363 suits straight cap Oxfords as well as providing the foundations to an excellent fitting Hand Grade loafer.
Did you know?
Willow Grain is our first linear grain, meaning the embossing is of a more uniformed appearance running in a directional format. This linear print heavily restricts our Clickers (when cutting the leather sections) and results in a much wider and more expensive cut (referring to leather utilisation).
