Natural Crepe, the purest form of latex rubber, is a curious material that brings casual comfort to high quality craftsmanship. A wonder of the natural world, raw latex is tapped directly from a rubber tree, in a process that leaves the trees unharmed and able to produce for decades to come. Crepe Rubber is not the mainstay to our business, but it does provide a unique opportunity to offer a fully repairable collection with a touch of composed informality. Always with a keen eye on style.
This capsule collection for Spring Summer 2019 has been developed on Last 377, an asymmetric, round toed and characterful last. Each of the ‘Summer Line’ styles has maximum comfort at its core. Accomplished by using the soft, but robust repello suede, whilst removing the linings to ensure increased breathability and flexibility. The Natural Crepe sole, now fully stitched to the welt, is our most flexible sole and perfect for the ‘Summer Line’ concept.
CRANLEIGH - MID-BLUE SUEDE
NATURAL CREPE RUBBER SOLE
Launched last spring, CRANLEIGH, our unlined Chelsea boot for summer, is the first choice style for this summer’s comfort collection. The only style available in mid-blue suede (a seasonal choice), it further supports the continuing strength of our smart-casual offering.
SEVERN II - MUSHROOM SUEDE
NATURAL CREPE SOLE
A more specific style to the French / European market, Severn has become a popular, unlined, low-leg Derby boot that sits a touch above the more casual styles from our smart-casual collection.
