The world-renowned Hand Grade collection from Crockett and Jones represents the art of shoe-making at its highest level and some of the finest ready to wear footwear in the world today.
An asymmetric last, shaped to the natural contours of the foot, gives exceptional fitting qualities. Uppers cut from the finest calf skins with a supple tannage, provide glove-like comfort. Fine aniline dyes in the leathers and extensive hand polishing of the finished shoes create a rich depth of colour which will be enhanced with age if regularly polished and cared for. Soles that have been slowly tanned with natural barks, in the most traditional way, have superior strength and flexibility.
The fine stitch detailing of the uppers and the expert way in which the soles are trimmed and stitched before a final wax polishing, can all be attributed to the hand of a highly-skilled craftsman. Each pair takes up to 10 weeks to manufacture in a painstaking process involving over 200 individual operations.
The Main collection of Crockett and Jones footwear for men and women encompasses a range of classic and elegant calf styles featuring oxfords, derbyâ™s, loafers and monk shoes, as well as sportier country shoes and boots. The assortment of leather and rubber-soled shoes and boots are constructed with durable uppers from the finest leathers including; aniline calf, suede, country grains and specialised leathers such as Shell Cordovan. Wide and narrow fittings are also available within this range.
