In the olden days, shoemakers traditionally honored their patron saint by fashioning a unique work of art to express their devotion.
This year, on Saint Crispin’s Day, John Lobb pays tribute to the revered patron saint by creating a true masterpiece, a reflection of the bootmaker’s remarkable talent. A beautiful way to show true love for this profession, constantly exploring new frontiers.
An oxford with a plain capped toe, crafted on the 8000 last, this style is created using the John Lobb. Prestige process, one that imparts the appearance of a made-to-measure: the most perfect and elegant shoe that can be made as a ready-to-wear. Finely wheeled welts, hand sculptured waists, tapered heels and rounded sole bottoms at the waist all combine to give the ultimate in lightness and comfort.
The John Lobb 2011 is the first limited edition to be offered in suede in two different colours. Firstly, a new and stunning Prune Suede, lined with the delicate Pale Grey Museum Calf for an exciting contrast, and also, the John Lobb classic Dark Brown Suede complimented with a Bronze Lord Calf lining.
