A significant portion of my next paycheck has been pre-reserved for a pair of dangerously pointly, low-heeled black Chelsea boots.
They’ve been beckoning to me for some time now, and I need them so much that I can’t even divulge their exact location. Sorry. But such is the case when it comes to Winter boots. I’m already disenchanted with my Woolworths ones after seeing them on all and sundry. Bratty, I know, but I can’t help it.
These Crockett & Jones classics are pretty much flawless. Crafted to last a lifetime, and truly stylish in their downright simplicity. I first encountered the oldschool glory that is Crockett and Jones when I discovered these lovingly resoled monk shoes a few months back.
Their über functional, no-nonsense website is a testament to their craft – Crockett & Jones is a 5th generation family-run business that prides itself on quality, handmade leather shoes. Each pair takes up to 8 weeks to make and is crafted to stand the test of time. This little bit of research has me feeling really proud of my vintage C & J find, and also wishing I could secure a pair of their classic men’s Chelsea’s to call my own.
