The Crockett & Jones sole guide brings together our wide variety of soles on offer, in one place. Regardless of the occasion or footwear requirements, our choice of sole always has our customers in mind.
A STEP IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION
With the growth of the rubber sole, today, our collection of fine footwear covers an almost unending array of scenarios. From the fine, traditional Leather Sole, channelled for Hand Grade finesse to the over-sized Cleated Rubber sole, there is a sole for almost every occasion.
New technologies continue to become available, enabling us to further develop our shoes & boots, blending new soles with our tried and tested Goodyear welted construction method, to suit our customers everyday needs with comfort, durability, repairability and style at its core.
Our men’s soles for Hand Grade shoes are produced with a traditional, slow bark tannage which improves the fibres and enhances flexibility. For extra finesse, the soles are stitched in concealed channels, hand stained, and polished on the last by our skilled craftsmen.
Single / Double
All our men’s leather soles are cut from the highest quality hides and have a strong tannage for extra durability. The soles are stitched in a groove, so that the stitching is visible from the underside of the shoe. After stitching, the soles are individually trimmed on the last, hand stained, and wax polished.
The SUPERFLEX leather sole, our most flexible leather sole (ever), is exclusive to Crockett & Jones. Permeated with waxes during the lengthy and highly scientific tanning process it is hardwearing and offers extreme levels of comfort and grip.
