Here at Bowhill & Elliott we have long supported quality English made Goodyear welted footwear, and are delighted to now offer those same qualities in our women’s collections. As one would expect, Women’s Crockett & Jones shoes are made in exactly the same way, with the same unrivalled leathers in Crockett & Jones famous Northampton factory as the men’s collections.

 

Bowhill and the Double Monk – Monk straps have long been credited to the Monks of Europe, who in the 15th century would roam the lands in a sandal with two straps and a buckle to fasten. Bowhill & Elliott have been around a long time (1874 if you was wondering) but even we cant elude to be around when the monk strap was invented. Bowhill & Elliott was certainly in full swing when the style resurfaced in the 1920’s, generally as a single strap with buckle on a black dress shoe. In recent years the double monk has come to prominence, and become popular to fill the gap between a loafer or Oxford shoe in terms of formality.

 

Bowhill & Elliott have proudly stocked Crockett & Jones footwear in our Norwich store since the 1940’s, highlighting our special relationship with Northampton’s finest shoemaker and underpinning our commitment to supporting premium British manufacturing.
