Derwent II, a plain front derby boot featuring a heavy duty and Englsih made 'Ridgeway' rubber sole. Made using the comfortable wax calf on the new 377 last. From the Men's Main Collection.
Last 377 is a Main Collection last, taking a hint of inspiration from the quirky no.359 last. With the excellent fitting qualities of our more recent lasts (no.363/ no.373/ no.375/no.376) well reported worldwide, development of the 377 last is no different. Another extremely comfortable and distinctly unique last has been produced by shortening its stick length, slimming down the back-part and slightly redesigning the toe shape of last no.359. Resulting in an asymmetric, round toed and characterful last, with notions of classic English shoemaking offering a slightly broader appearance in the forepart. It has proved a fantastic last in the short term that lends itself to a toe cap or plain front style.
