Crockett & Jones Hallam Black Calf
Crockett & Jones Black Calf Leather Oxford Toe Cap with City Rubber Sole.
Made in England
£470.00 inc. VAT
Crockett & Jones Hallam is a black calf leather Oxford toe cap made on the iconic 348 last and featuring an elegant city rubber sole. Possibly the most distinguished shape in the Crockett & Jones arsenal, the slender silhouette is immediately recognised by shoe aficionados. The city sole offers all the durability expected from rubber, but in true Crockett & Jones fashion the profile remains unchanged, making the Hallam just as likely to be worn on the aisle as it is pounding the city streets.
Crockett & Jones Hallam is Goodyear welted, a traditional shoe manufacturing construction favoured by English shoemakers, allowing for multiple resoles. Repair not replace is the key to enjoying this style for many years, being the ultimate in sustainable footwear.
Bowhill and the Oxford Toe Cap
Oxford toe caps are the most quintessential of dress shoes, and an obvious must have at Bowhill & Elliott. Rumour has it the style originated in the early 1800s, named by the students at Oxford university, as the closed lacing system and elegant toe cap stitching became all the rage. Across the pond, our American friends would reference to the style as a cap toe Oxford, or maybe even a balmoral, either way this timeless style is entrenched in classic menswear across the globe. It is a common misconception that the ‘cap’ alone makes the style an Oxford, where in fact the closed lacing is the deciding factor, so to correct the famous Kingsman quote, “Oxfords or Brogues?”, it is quite possible to actually have an Oxford brogue!
The beauty of our fine city of Norwich is that we cater for such a variety of occasion, the countryside and coast, within an hour away. A complete shoe wardrobe is a must if you want to fully immerse in all Norfolk has to offer, with an Oxford toe cap the linchpin of the Bowhill & Elliott gentleman’s shoe collection.
