With style trends becoming more and more casual over the last few years, we have grown our range of unlined styles to suit all occasions for the Spring Summer months. With this ever-extending offering of unlined styles, you can now reach for a pair of more breathable and lightweight choices. As well as styles also benefiting from a half lining, exaggerating the curves of our recognisable lasts, producing elegant, durable and flexible options for your summer wardrobe. Below are our Top 5 Unlined styles to help you choose your next pair of Crockett & Jones.
First introduced for Spring Summer 2021, Seaton kicks off our list as the ultimate unlined flexible style. Sporting our SUPERFLEX Leather sole, our most flexible leather sole (ever) and exclusive to Crockett & Jones, the sole is permeated with waxes during the lengthy and highly scientific tanning process producing a hardwearing sole and offers extreme levels of comfort and grip. In Dark Oak and Earth Green Suede, Seaton is the perfect versatile colourway choice to match with almost every outfit this season.
No stranger to our Top 5 articles is Harvard 2, now available in three colourways, Dark Brown, Snuff and Khaki Suede. This versatile Loafer has been in our Main Collection since 2015 and has remained a Crockett & Jones customer favourite for years to come, a C&J icon. Harvard 2 was the originator of a cascade of unlined Loafers which followed, whose main focus was flexibility, breathability and comfort – an unlined style not to be missed!
The perfect style to see you through the summer and into the autumn months is Sulgrave, an unlined Chukka boot currently offered in Khaki Suede. Sporting our ‘City’ Rubber Sole combined with our soft but durable suede, practicality and comfort are at the very core of Sulgrave. Match with our now available Khaki Suede Belt to complete the look.
The unlined version of our famous Penny Loafer ‘Sydney’, Teign in Dark Brown Suede is a popular choice for those wishing for a smart casual unlined option. Produced on our most popular Main Collection Last, 341, Teign benefits from a rounded toe with longer looking aesthetics. Available on our Single Leather sole, along with a Navy Suede colourway for those wanting to break away from the more traditional colourways.
Completing our list is our unlined Derby shoe, Waterford in Dark Oak and Khaki Suede - perfect for smart casual dressing! Another style sporting our SUPERFLEX Leather sole, Waterford is lasted around one of our newest Main Collection Lasts, 379, developed in 2019. With contrast-coloured laces, the deep rich tones of Dark Oak Suede make it another perfectly versatile unlined style for all occasions this summer.
Fitting tip – We suggest going down half a size for all our unlined styles.
