Today's Favorites - Crockett & Jones

When I first saw all of these pictures, I could not believe my eyes! Not because Crockett & Jones does not make nice shoes, but they are usually on the relatively conservative side. If you walk by their shop in the Burlington Arcade in London, you will see a bombardment of black, brown and tan, with a small hint of burgundy somewhere in the trenches, but NEVER have I seen green chelsea boots and blue saddle shoes. It makes me wonder if these, like some of G&G's factory shoes, are for another market, such as Japan and the Far East?  Nevertheless, I was very impressed when I saw them, and I think that I gave C&J a couple of extra points in my book of cool shoe brands. The shame is that I will probably never see these in the flesh, as I truly believe that they will not hit the UK (nor US for that matter) market. And because of that, I still think that when I go to Japan for the first time, it's going to be like a kid going to Disneyland, with shoes everywhere in blue's, green's, red's etc.


  1. Dear blogger,

    I believe this collection is solely made for the Swedish market in celebration of C&J's 25th import year. All models are limited to 25 pairs and sell for around £640.

    Please see:

  2. Ville Raivio - Thanks for the information. This does bring back memories that the Swedish market also likes very fun and colorful stuff. If only England and the US could have more capsule collections such as this, that would be great! Thanks for posting!
