Last year’s best-selling chukka boot, Molton, now world-renowned after becoming a James Bond feature style, is now available in black rough-out suede with Dainite rubber soles. From the Men's Main Collection. There is certainly No Time To… Wait, when the bidding opens for this new version.
Rough-out suede is a material that ‘roughs-up’ during wear. Over time, it takes on a rugged, worn aesthetic which makes it our most casual material in the collection. If left uncared for, you will find it lightens and continues to become rougher in look and feel. However, rough-out suede very much benefits from an annual covering in dubbin to uphold its water resistance. An application of dubbin will also darken down the leather, and reduce its rough appearance bringing back some ‘newness’.
When ordered online, all rough-out suede shoes/boots are pre-treated before they are shipped. If in store, you can also speak to our staff about caring for rough-out suede.

LAST NO. 336
Last 336 is a Main Collection last, with a broad square toe and increased toe depth. With its wider forepart, it has a generous fitting across the ball of the foot. 336 only featured for a short time in the collection. Today, it is only utilised for the one style, Molton, a square toe Chukka boot, an alternative to the more popular Chiltern. A feature that seemed to follow the 336 is the use of a notched storm-welt, not a requirement but certainly a complimenting detail.
Know your styles
It is believed that a Chukka boot has both a sporting and a military heritage. A Chukka boot (or Desert boot) is constructed using three pieces of outer material – Inside Quarter, Outside Quarter and Vamp with low cut leg (but above the ankle) and two to three eyelets. In contrast, a Derby boot is a fully lined, high leg and all together, more substantial boot with variations similar to a Derby shoe. Chukka boots are usually considered unlined, although lined versions are available and they are often regarded as the most comfortable of all styles.
Autumn Winter 2022
Crockett & Jones’ new collection of winter boots are ready to be worn in the wild, regardless of the destination.
This Autumn Winter we stepped out of our comfort zone. Taking five new styles for AW22 and nine hard hitting iconic boots to the land of fire and ice, we put them through their paces across terrain that can only be found in a country that blends the thunderous vibrations of glacial movement, and the rather unnerving rumblings of volcanic uprisings.Read more
Our Rough-Out Suede is a tough suede with wax treatment on the surface, which gives it its rugged character and some water resistance. This leather is particularly suitable for casual boots and shoes for all-year round wear, but is particularly well suited to the colder, autumn / winter season.Read more
