About the brand
Crockett & Jones shoes
In 1879, Charles Jones and his brother-in-law James Crockett, created the brand that now wears both their names. Family-operated business for now 5 generations, Crockett & Jones continues to produce magnificent footwear in Northampton, England, the birthplace of traditional British shoe making.
Handcrafted by highly-qualified craftsmen and women, more than 200 hand-made operations (8 to 10 weeks of work) are required to create one single pair! This is probably why James Bond (Daniel Craig in Skyfall and Spectre) likes to wear Crockett & Jones shoes!
Crockett & Jones' collection : 'Hand Grade' and 'Main Line'
The 'Hand Grade' collection corresponds to the premium line of Crockett & Jones. Handcrafted from the most prestigious leather, the shoes are shaped to the natural contours of the foot, with an asymetric last, giving exceptionnal fitting qualities. Uppers are cut from the finest calf skins with a supple tannage provinding glove-like comfort. The dyes in the leather combined with an extensive hand polishing of the finished shoes, create a rich depth of colour, enhanced with age if regularly cared for. The outsoles are slowly tanned with natural oak barks, in the most traditional way to obtain superior comfort and flexibility. The outer stitches of these gorgeous shoes are invisible, and only appear once the shoes have been worn.
Lonsdale and Egerton are part of the 'Hand Grade' collection.
The 'Main Line' collection corresponds to a wide range of elegant styles for city wear, as well as country shoes and boots. This assortment of footwear with leather or Daininte rubber soles is made from the finest smooth leather, suede, or country grains. Hand-crafted by the traditional Goodyear welted construction, these shoes combine comfort, elegance and longevity in wear.

Crockett & Jones' repairs
One of the benefits of owning a Crockett & Jones’ pair of Goodyear welted shoes is that you can have them re-soled without damaging the uppers, thereby prolonging their lifespan.
