Top 5 Crockett & Jones... Boots

Looking at text from the Northampton Footwear Museum, it seems that the history books did not document any of the modern day boot terminologies until the mid-19th century. However, boots or 'ankle shoes' clearly make up some of the oldest styles of footwear in our history, probably because of their high levels of protection and warmth.

Over the last five years, Crockett & Jones has seen a rise in the popularity of boots and although this could be down to the growth of our reputation, it is more than likely down to the increase in casual styling. Many of our boots are made using grain or suede leather which naturally lends itself to a more relaxed look. A couple of our boots have also had some great publicity from featuring in James Bond’s SKYFALL and both making it into our TOP FIVE… Here are our five favourites available from Crockett & Jones retail shops today:
