Light. Easy. Refined. Sophisticated. They are terms that may seem mutually exclusive in some worlds, but not entirely where the Crockett & Jones SS21 Unstructured Collection is concerned. For the 19th-century brand recognized the world over for its elegant, handmade footwear, the new range marks something of a departure. Designed over the course of more than two years, the range spotlights the Superflex leather sole. As flexible as it is durable thanks to an enduring tanning technique that solidifies its strength, the sole is symbolic of Crockett & Jones’s meticulous design process. Each shoe in the collection is Goodyear-welted, with features like airy ribbing and snug fibers that contribute to a better fit, the shoes boast an airy quality without sacrificing the robustness of hardier loafers.
Superflex makes an appearance in five of the collection’s shoes, including Salcombe, Solent, Richmond 2, Waterford, and Seaton. Each evokes a sense of undeniable posh appeal. It’s impossible to miss that in their clean lines, buttery materials, and steadfast attention to detail. That each shoe is as much a worthy companion for a pair of jeans as khakis is evidence of the collection’s sheer versatility. While they are formidable companions for the workplace, they make equally sensible additions to any casual wardrobe.
