are among the recondite specialisms that go into bootmaking at crockett & jones. the northampton brand, which this year celebrates both 20 years of trading on london’s jermyn street and the acquisition of a royal warrant, has used Goodyear-welted construction methods for over a century. this exacting skill of stitching leather, rubber and ribbing is part of the process that, with the fine country scotch grain leather, makes its islay brogue derby boot so durable. “it’s been in the range since 2010,” says marketing manager james fox, “and has become one of the highest-quality long-lasting brogue boots money can buy.”
